Potential idea: There are 2 weeks left to submit a proposal. What do you think about this? + Any ideas of applicants?

    Now i have two big problems that i can't fix.


    Overall module state: Deprecated

    New maintainer required

    Reasoning: SVG Full (as opposed to SVG Tiny) functionality available in QtWebKit, which should be used instead; we welcome research for a replacement for the SVG-generating code.

    We need Svg generation library and i can't create this by myself. And also QtSvg have some bugs what need be fixed, if we want use library.

    Another issue Postscript generation with Qt. I also want generat PS or EPS(better) file. See thread about situation now. So, i think, if someone help Qt support these format it will be nice not only for me or this project.

    Those are Qt related, not Valentina related.

    Anyway, will post on the mailinglist and start a wiki page. Then possible to send out to the FOSS world + social media to see if anyone.

    No, it is Valentina related. Because Valentina depends on Qt. Qt's issue means Valentina's issue. If no one done this i definitely will create this alone. Some library that was included to Qt was created without Qt team.
