"It has been a while since my last blog. Last time, I talked about how the Qt repository in Git was one year old. It was a humorous way of showing the growth and success of our contribution model. Or, at least, that's what I intended…

"For the past two months I have been working with a group of people inside Applications and Service Frameworks (the unit of Nokia that is responsible for Qt) on opening up our way of working even more.

"The change to open the governance model more is the natural continuation of what we've been so far: Open Source is the foundation of the future work in Nokia, as can be seen by the Symbian Foundation, the MeeGo work we're doing with Intel and the Linux Foundation, and especially Qt. And this is not news for Qt either: for over a decade we've been opening up our model: the QPL, the GPL, the LGPL, the daily snapshots, the open repository, the contribution model, etc."
