There are over 3 different people activly working on Qt at this point in time.
Before any packages will be uploaded all of us have to agree that everything
is correct.  Then the packages will be placed up on a web site for public
testing.  There will be at least 2 key packages that will be tagged for
testing.  The new Qt packages will have to be installed and these packages
will have to successfully build using the new packages and run.  One of
these packages will be kdelibs, and the other(s) will have to be non-KDE
applications/libraries.  If any problems occur we lather/rinse/repeat.

I think this should satisfy the requirements whether or not the actual
maintainer is newbie or not.
