Gentoo Qt Project
The Qt project handles the Qt ebuilds available in Gentoo's portage and the qt overlay. It also maintains various Qt packages and libraries that don't have dedicated maintainers.
The goal of the Gentoo Qt team is have fully functional, up-to-date ebuilds for the Qt toolkit and various Qt applications. We also maintain eclasses that ease creation and maintainance of ebuilds using Qt.

maintaining many flavors of the Qt library. Currently we maintain and
test on an almost daily basis the following packages:

The qt overlay also contains many live ebuilds for Qt-based applications, as
well as packages that are being tested for inclusion in portage.

Active contributors usually gain access to the qt overlay to better help
us with ebuild maintainance and can, in time, become full-fledged developers :)
