I'm not sure it will be quite ready for 14.10 either (we have to change all
the GTK applications to Qt version, it's quite a lot of work to test the
integration of all of them). But with a 14.04 LTS, we can release a
"not-so-stable-and-finished" 14.10 Qt version, because we still can advise
people to keep 14.04. The goal also, is to focus on maintaining the LTS
version, and development the Qt version until it's stable enough to
completely switch to it. That should make the maintenance possible (1
version to maintain, 1 to develop).
