So if we try minimize the burden to the project it is proof we don't care 
about the burden we have on the project? You are really grasping at straws

I believe that is a rhetorical question at this point. We will be disabling 
the Qt bots and start moving the port out today. Feel free to start removing 
Qt specific code as soon as the bots are out. I would like to request that you 
leave the Qt specific bugs in bugs.webkit.org open for the time being until 
they have been evaluated and closed or migrated. 

Thank you
