Regardless of the article, where is the infringing source code (exact
files that I can look up in the repo, please)? I understand the need for
a libre fork (exactly as what we do with Mozilla Firefox, but we don't
go around saying that's non-free, just that it promotes non-free
addons), but with regards to Qt5 Webengine and all software that uses
it, I would very much appreciate if this knowledge were shared instead
of sitting in a safe until Richard decides to publish his article.

I believe I mentioned this to fauno last night, but I would really
suggest creating an etherpad where all this information can be
concentrated so that everyone can see it and add comments on their
validity (especially with whatever pertains to Qt5 Webengine).
