Is there any plan to merge qt-components-ubuntu into official QT/QML? Is it ongoing already? It's quite sad that ubuntu forked qt. I want to use qml to build a desktop app, and widgets introduced in qt-components-ubuntu are what I need.

Ubuntu developers didn't fork Qt. They just added a custom library for native Ubuntu apps. Digia is the owner of Qt, so only they can include Ubuntu components into default Qt libs, but its probablity is very low because core feature of Qt is cross-platform support.

Why should qt-components-ubuntu be not cross-platform? I thought it was written in qml. Even if it is a c++ and qt code, it still should be portable. – user127258 Jan 30 '13 at 13:03
