It would be nice if there was some intermediate communication between "we're
looking into it" and "We will target Monday June 16 for landing".
Collaboration is not built this way.

The major thing this misses is merging from Debian. There are quite good Qt5
5.3.0 packages in Debian Experimental and what is uploaded to the archive
should be based on that work.

Also, IIRC, June 16 is the release day for 5.3.1. Can you target the Friday
before? I think it would be less confusing.
