As Qt3 is part of the LSB and is no longer maintained by Nokia the proper
action to take becomes a bit murky.  Renaming the project will cause
confusion, and partially defeat the purpose of taking over Qt3 maintenance
in the first place.

My first thought is to wait and see if Nokia even cares enough to contact
us about it.  We are not competing with Nokia (we don't even have a Web
site for Qt3!); the extent of our publication of Qt3 is a source directory
tucked away in our GIT tree.  Personally I don't think we'll hear from
Nokia any time soon. ;-)
