I agree for extras-devel completely, but testing is a bit of a mystery to me
in this context. You push to testing, people test, get it tested and... then
what ? Extras should by definition not contain/force on people untested
stuff with known breakage potential. That is not mean that we cannot change
definitions, just saying that we have to be clear about that :)

Try talking to harryF on #qt-maemo, he was looking for a maintainer.
Currently there is a slight vacuum - unlike the previous jump with QML, 4.7
updates are not significantly different from the one in the PR to warrant
anyone from linking to it, and the the to-be-4.8 has no high-profile new
features available for devs yet. As for what happens in extras(-devel) with
the new versions, it's certainly a community coordinated effort and AIUI the
Council has a large (pretty much final) word on that. As you yourself said
it, it's in everybody's interest to have the latest & greatest Qt stuff
available not just as gitoriousware, but in an easily testable dev-friendly
binary form, too.
