That's correct. In fact, the final executable is named openshot-qt

Yes I've just built it and it seems to work OK (although just minimal 
testing so far).

Hi Matteo,

I can take openshot.

However goocanvas and pygoocanvas are not used in the new version (which 
needs several other new SlackBuilds instead) so someone else should take 
those two.

Having built the new openshot, I'm now working through the new 
SlackBuilds required to build and run it. They should all be available 
in a day or two (ready for next SlackBuilds repo update).
