That is where maybe Qt communication fails.
Because I don’t have Git checkout of Qt source code, I was always tend to avoid this mailing-list and to write only on the community forum. But maybe you should take a look on the forum, because I seen a lot of time people answering that the only way to get an answer is to ask on the development mailing-list because only developer knows everything. But sometimes it’s wrong.
In fact, I continue to think that it’s wrong to write on development mailing-list to know if a certain module is under development or not, and what features and improvements are planned for the next release. I think in this way, because also normal Qt user (those without git checkout of the source code) wants to know such information in order to plan their development and to choose if remain with Qt or user other tools.
Also part of this discussion (and this email) it’s off-topic for the development mailing-list, and I’m sorry for that.
