October 21, 2013 marks the Qt Project's second anniversary. Launched in 2011 to be the home of the Qt libraries and frameworks under Open Source Governance, the Qt Project has seen quite a lot of change in these 2 years., good and bad. It lost its main sponsor and many doubted the project would continue, but it did, and it managed to release the first major release in 7 years (5.0), one more feature release and half a dozen patch releases. This presentation will review the principles of the project's governance, who the contributors are and how they work, the major changes that happened in the past two years and how they've influenced the project. It will explore the development process from patch to release and to maintenance / bug fixing, and will also show how non-code contributors participate.
