Did you read my previous post?

There are no ressources on TDE to do this. All of us work in the free time
we have besides normal work and family, so it is not possible unless we
have more people/developers to do the work or financial support.
If you can financially support us, we can dedicate time to moving things to
Qt5, if not just stop dreaming and become realistic.
For example I estimate about at minimum 70-100k brutto a year per developer
to work full time.
