That’s an option we could try and see how it works.

Another thing that would help a lot would be to remove obvious changes
from the diff. If we e.g. do a s/Q_NULLPTR/0/ in the headers before
creating the diff, it would be down to half it’s size. We had some similar
changes for each of our last minor versions, that we should try to catch
and remove from manual reviewing.
