I think you have a serious community problem on the qTox side. I am a 
bit shocked to see a qTox contributor saying that it would be best if 
tox is "cut off and/or replaced" in qTox.

For the full conversation see 

*Edit:* After asking again whether qTox should be cut off, he responded 
that this "cut off" was only meant for the packages. He also said
> I don't know whether qTox should be "cut off" from "Tox", and I'm not

This still does not sound very convincing...

He also explains some communication issues and that

Also the tox.chat website is only "slightly better than 'just some 
random website'" for him.

So please be friendly to each other. It really should not happen that a 
contributor of one tox client distances him/herself so much from the 
rest of the tox community.
When I said qTox and tox have the same mission @zetok said:

So, hell, no. I seriously hope you have the same mission. - Although I 
cannot find a mission statement on the tox.chat website. (Maybe that's 
something you can improve?)
