Looking through the code, it looks like the #ifndef stuff for 
things called "extensive hacks" could cause some issues, but 
that's a cursory glance at it. I'm also not sure what to make of 
the patches for Qt in its repository. If they're serious 
patches, they should clone Qt on Gitorious and create merge 
requests. Fedora's Qt probably won't ship with them without some 
oversight that they aren't breaking things.

Overall, it looks simple for a first package (though it's using 
qmake, not CMake). I haven't packaged anything that uses qmake 
myself, but more complex projects can quickly get too hard to 
deal with in qmake.

If you're looking for other software to package, there is a 
wishlist on the wiki[1].
