Apologies, I seem to have posted an incorrect URL in the SVN checkout
command.  Here is the correct command:

svn co .

Also, I received a query regarding letting other distributions know about
our new Qt3 branch.  I would say yes, go ahead; this move essentially
makes us a candidate to be the upstream source for Qt3, and the more
people we have submitting bugfix/security patches the better.
