qtm can be updated separately. The thing we have to remember is that
Ovi also uses the same repository, so things need to be coordinated.

I've asked the SDK team what the plans are wrt updating qtm.

Let's wait for a response, before we start coming up with all kinds of
hacks on our side. It is also in Nokia's interest to keep Qt and qtm
in line with MeeGo.

I second this. Let's first see if there are official plans, if there
aren't then we can go and try to fix things ourselves.
