    4 Qt is a cross-platform application and UI framework. Using Qt, you can write applications once and deploy them across many desktop and embedded operating systems without rewriting the source code. (See [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qt_(toolkit)].) Availability for eCS means being able to port a [http://www.qt-apps.org/ large number of existing applications].

    10 Some time ago Qt 4 got introduced. New Qt applications use this version of the toolkit, of course, but also more and more existing Qt 3 applications have been making the switch. 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. Dmitriy offered 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.
