Free Software: if it breaks, you get to keep both pieces. Please, if you
find something thats wrong, learn not to accept it. Send me patches to
documentation if its broken. Offer to work on the website if its insufficient.

TrollTech has a lot of full time employees only working on Qt, and getting
paid for that. They do have customers. Thus its sure that they do have the
resources to write good code and really good documentation.
