    88A few years ago netlabs.org hired Dmitry A. Kuminov (aka dmik) to port version 3 of the toolkit to the eCS (OS/2) platform. This port is working well and made it possible to port many applications to our platform.

    10 Some time ago Qt 4 got introduced and more and more applications are using this version of the toolkit by now. To make sure we can port those applications again, we have to invest some more work into the eCS (OS/2) port, as Qt 4 redid a lot of things from scratch. Dmitry offererd us to work on the port again, our goal would be to hire him for about 5 months, but we cannot do that ourself without help from the community.
