Sure, that's called the sip ChangeLog... Kidding aside, either follow this 
list, it's pretty low volume with an unparalleled signal/noise ratio 
(nobody beats Phil in that - sometimes his signal emissions are so pure, 
that the receiver circuits immediately overmodulate) or just ask, as you 

Source code incompatible changes are pretty rare - usually, it takes a new 
Qt _version_. This time, it was due to the new Python _version_, but 
everybody agrees, that the nature of this Python 3 release was exceptional.

However, it would be cool to just start over with a new page at the PyQt 
wiki documenting those changes, you found - with the given workarounds.
