thanks for your offer - we will definetly have to work together to resolve
certain issues with the other Qt packages after the 3.1.1 x11 version is
done. Yesterday afternoon Martin asked me to help him finish up the package
which we continued to do until 11 pm. Today we'll fix up what's left to do
(I'm currently at that) and do test builds.

I reached my goal with my mails to make people aware that there are problems
and Martin to work with me because he wants to maintain Qt3. I don't care
about who is actually the packager but that I can work with him and that the
work gets done, if it requires some ranting here and there so be it.

Please give him the chance to finish up the work we did now. You may think
about your proposal again if we happen to end up in a dead end again.
