The report was marked as a P2, and nobody raised it to be a showstopper for the release. Trying to do this on the day before is unfair to everybody else.

I understand that this is an issue for KDE, but since it only happens when using qDBusAddSpyHook I am convinced it’ll hit almost no other user. So while KDE is important, I don’t think this is a good enough reason to block the release. It’s been taking too long in any case already.

Let’s rather get this fixed in the 5.6 branch and follow up with a 5.6.1 quickly. We have other important bug fixes already waiting in that branch as well.

>> 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
