I think we don't have clear, obvious and public policy at all.
Or maybe Nokia has, but I don't know anything about it ...

It isn't so good if I notice that a commit break Qt buildbot on build.webkit.org,
because for example we don't support the Qt on it anymore or it needs an extra Qt
feature switched on or Qt Mobility x.y version, etc. I always get information about
this kind of de facto rules after I ask you guys why the bot is red again ...

I absolutely agree. But which is the correct date to drop Qt 4.7 support?
 From who and when will I know that we don't support Qt 4.7 anymore?
