IIRC, stewbintn said qt3 dep will/is planned to be dropped from LSB upstream.

And just so that I make myself clearer, from my POV this thread is not
about adding, half-adding or half-removing or throwing qt3-devel out
the window... IMHO this is about whether or not to add Trinity to the
Mageia repos, that's the more important issue. Given how much a sticky
situation mdv was in with KDE4 in main and KDE3 in contrib that
doesn't look like an ideal situation for Mageia (IMHO).

(Also in one of the posts in this thread, someone said Trinity is
planning port KDE3 apps to Qt4, and here's me thinking that the
porting-of-kde3-apps-to-Qt4 has already happened in a project called
KDE4 that made its first initial release on the 11th of January 2008,
about 3 years ago, c.f.
