I'm not sure that you have to slam him for having a bit screwed up
changelog but I'll have to for having really fucked up 
packages. I mean, com on. Before releasing a library of this size,
one should really check not only that it compiles but also that
all the programs work.

I mean, is it so difficult to try to compile the examlpes? I mean,
going into the hello directory in the examples and typing

qmake hello

check if it compiles and runs?

This is redicules. I might expect that there might be a missing file
somewhere to some obscure utility or something but to have
core utilities like qmake crap out... well.. do I really have to
say more??

I really believe that a maintainer of something like Qt really
needs to be using it on day to day basis. Imagine what libc, gcc or 
xfree86 would look like if maintainers of those packages were not
using them.

Off to sleep - I have to wait for old Qt packages to recompile with
GCC 3.2 (a few hours)
