Hi Maintainers and Approver,

Please keep in mind dependent modules when you approve and merge in
changes which can lead to dependent projects failing. If you know that a
commit has a risk of destabilizing other modules, please ensure that you
are prepared to also do a fix in the dependent module, to help mitigate
those libraries failing their CI runs.

I don't have the exact case handy right now, but have been told that
recent commits in QtBase has made other modules fail their CI runs.

Given that non-Nokian personnel cannot yet see the CI results, please note
that Nokian's need to help out a bit extra to flag the issues for others,
until we have managed to put in place a system to expose the CI test

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Head of Qt OSS
