this is how eCosCentric (http://www.ecoscentric.com) handled copyright 
assignments if you submitted a significant patch for inclusion in eCos (a 
free RTOS):
http://ecos.sourceware.org/assign.html

If you are working in a company, your boss had to sing it, if you're working 
on your own, you sign it.

It's a bit tedious, but I think something similar should also be possible for 
Qt.
