Hi all,

TBUG-51676 seems to be p2 and so on cannot block the release. It also have been open a while without anyone indicating it should be fixed before releasing so I wouldn't block the release because of this at this point anymore. I think adding this in known issues page (https://wiki.qt.io/Qt_5.6.0_Known_Issues) & fixing this in 5.6.1 should be ok even this is regression issue
