I too would like to know where the bugs are lodged because some bright
spark decided that hard coding operating system version numbers in the
clang make specs for Qt was a good idea.  For that he gets a slow clap
and the bug assigned to him when there's a clear procedure of where to
lodge it.

On the plus side, it can be overwritten on an individual basis.
Unlike a certain language binding package written in the UK, whose
author is next on my list for not only hardcoding the OS version
number, but doing so in such a way that any attempt to fix it will be
overwritten, thus breaking the fix.  That's particularly special, but
not for this list, for a different list.
