There will be no direct push access to qt.git for everyone and anyone. In the 
future, the plan is to give that to some trusted people who have shown that 
they can follow the rules.

But commits *always* require a review by the people who maintain the code. 
Even for Trolls. Features require autotests, bugfixes require autotests. 
Features require API review.

And you have to watch the build results to make sure nothing broke, and the 
autotest results (those will be made public in the coming months, just as the 
new bug-tracking system).

So, Qt development is not like KDE development. Deal with it.

PS: we'll also speed up reviews of MRs. Unfortunately, we built up a backlog 
due to the feature freeze coming up.

PPS: the rest of Nokia is also forced to go through MRs to get anything in Qt.
