No new mailing list, but you're better off using the ubuntu-dev mailing list for any development-related questions, even
for multi-touch questions.

Qt does not use Geis, but instead has its own gesture recognizer (on the Ubuntu desktop, built using the XCB QPA which
means it uses XInput2, just like Geis does).

Again, there are a lot of Qt experts on the ubuntu-dev mailing list, since Ubuntu us switching to using Qt as the main
toolkit in the future.
