During review for qt5 packaging in fedora, we noticed qt5 includes a bundled
copy of harfbuzz in src/3rdparty/harfbuzz/, and there currently doesn't seem
to be --system-harfbuzz type build option available.
In order to justfify an exception to our usual "no bundled libraries" rule,
I would need provide some answers to the following questions... so any
help/input would be appreciated:
* Is the bundled library updated or is it (will be) one or more versions
behind the latest upstream release?
* Is there any plan for unbundling the library at some later time?
* Has the library behaviour been modified? If so,
** how has it been modified?
** why haven't the changes been pushed to the upstream library?
