Who wants my feedback for the Maemo6-Qt tech preview?

During the Maemo Summit there were several talks about the upcoming Maemo 6 platform and also about the transition from GTK+/Hildon to Qt. One of them - the "(Introduction to the) Harmattan UI framework" also mentioned where to get the code for the Maemo 6 UI Framework from. So I went there and cloned the two available repos (tech preview of the framework, tech preview of the homescreen) together with the most recent Qt version that is also on that site.

But sadly, compiling the code wasn't possible for me. Apparantly because some header files were missing. The talk didn't mention a specific resource for feedback so I tried Maemo's Bugzilla. An e-mail to the git repo maintainer didn't yield any response (yet), either.

I reckon that my bug report on the Maemo bugtracker was filed against the wrong module (Qt on Fremantle), but where else should I post problems like that? Even if at this stage the above mentioned repos are probably not much more than a widget gallery it seems like a wasted opportunity to collect feedback, no?

I (maemo.org bugmaster) am currently in email contact with Nokia to find a solution.

Andre, thanks, but will any of the Qt web pages
(such as http://qt.gitorious.org/maemo-6-ui-fr... )
mention that people can report bugs there?

True. I've sent an email to Tomas. If there's no changes in the next days feel free to report an enhancement request now that we have a feedback channel...

UPDATE: There is a Qt-for-Maemo feedback list. It contains advice on how to get a recent Qt version from gitorious running on the device: http://lists.trolltech.com/pipermail/...
