     6== Historie ==
    57A few years ago hired Dmitry A. Kuminov (aka dmik) to port version 3 of the toolkit to the eCS and OS/2 platform. This port is working well and made it possible to port many applications to our platform.
    79Some 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 and 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.

     24== Reporting Bugs ==
     25Reporting bugs and requesting new features is done through the ticket system. You can view existing tickets, add comments to them and create new tickets using the corresponding buttons at the top of every page. If you want to submit a new bug or request a feature, please use the Search function first to make sure there is no ticket for this task already created.
     27Anonymous access to the ticket system has been restricted due to multiple attacks of stupid spammers we've been suffering from during the last month. In order to create a new ticket or comment the existing one, you need to login using a special account with name '''guest''' and password '''netlabs'''. The password may change in the feature, but you can always find the current one on this page. We are sorry for inconvenience, but at the present time this is the only way to avoid extremely annoying spam.
