No but there was no effort on the past done on Qt For Embedded Linux
in QtWebKit, I don't see why we should make them now when we know
there is a replacement and especially considering the low number of
QtWebKit developer. It's like to me making QtWebKit work on Windows
2000 just because people haven't switched (and nobody worked on
Windows 2000 support) and not focus on Windows 7 which is the standard
to be. So yes if you are interested, fix it, I'll be happy to help you
to get patches in but don't ask us to focus on something we haven't
focus before and that we know there is a better solution now.
