Hi All,

Just a quick reminder:
"Compilation is currently disabled on Windows for this alpha,
as building it right now is rather complex. We're working on
having this re-enabled and fully working for the beta."

Surely you know that QtWebKit on Windows still has build problems.
We started to fixing it in https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=88300 .

But it isn't so simple task to fix all build problems. Please
join us to help to make the QtWebKit buildable on Windows.

I filed meta bugs, and fixed or propesed a fix for all bugs I could.
But I can't fix the remaining bugs. (I'm not so expert to do it myself.)
That's why I ask your help. Volunteers?

Tomorrow I'm going to update the wiki page to help to setup the build
environment on Windows to be able to work on fixing the build. Now
only you have chance only with MSVC. MinGW build dies with very
very strange errors and I have no idea how to fix it. But I'll
file bug reports, maybe others now what happens.

See the following pages for details to setup the environment:

- http://qt.gitorious.org/qt/qt5/blobs/master/README
