The decision about removing Qt3 has been made 9 months ago, the decision about 
the upcoming mask has been made 4 months ago. So you had all the time to move 
to Qt4. We aint gonna maintain a package ( or library if you prefer ) that has 
been abandoned from upstream a long time ago. So if you still want to use it, 
please add kde-sunset overlay. We dont have neither the manpower nor the time 
to patch/fix/maintainer/etc/etc/ Qt3 anymore. However, we DO offer you like 6 
different versions of Qt4
*4.5.3
*4.6.1
*4.6.2
*4.6.9999
*4.7.9999
*4.7-prerelease ( soon )
*4.9999

Which we actively maintain. We decided to move forward and we are aware that 
few of our users might not like it. If you still want a working Qt3, please 
take care of it on kde-sunset

Thanks
