Public bug reported:

I"m trying to understand the reason behind these comments in the development section about QT
"On February 11, 2011, Nokia™ announced a “partnership” with Microsoft™ in which Nokia™ will replace Symbian™ with Windows Phone 7™ in wealthy American and European markets, but continue to use Symbian™ in India and other poorer regions. Because of a huge outcry by Qt and open source supporters who contributed to Symbian™, Meego™, and Maemo™, Nokia™ released a  blog message the next day. It seems they need Qt in order to continue to support Symbian™ on the 200 million Nokia™ phones that run it, and MeeGo™ and Maemo™ for a “disruptive” presence in the markets for which they are being offered. But, the partnership puts the commercial version of Qt in a questionable light due to the influence of Microsoft™ and the history of its partnership with Novell™ and others which no longer exist."

This seems to have no place in the help file and if there is an official
statement from QT or Nokia then it should be linked instead of putting
commentary there
