I think that was a bit of misscommmunication on our side there.

We are _not_ dropping support for Windows. QtWebKit 2.1 and 2.1.x are 
sub-releases that are unfortunatelly only tested on Symbian. They 
probably works fine on Windows bug it has not been tested properly.

The release of WebKit that will be in the next Qt will be tested on 
Windows as we usually do. (Note that our bots also build WebKit trunk on 
Windows: http://build.webkit.org/waterfall?category=core )

In the team, Jocelyn is our Windows magician. If you have problems on 
this platform, feel free to come on IRC and I am sure he will help you.

Qt 4.7 already have QtWebKit 2.0, you should not have to use the branch 
from gitorious.

About where to report errors, it depends what does not compile. If it is 
the webkit branch from gitorious, it goes on bugs.webkit.org. If it is 
the webkit integrated into Qt (src/3rdparty/webkit) it also goes on 
If it is the branch of JavascriptCore integrated to Qt 
(src/3rdparty/javascriptcore), that should go on the Qt bug tracker.
