I really want to move to QBS, because of its advantages (speed, good
dependency tracking, nice syntax, fexibility). However, as long as
Qt-Creator keeps generating new projects using qmake templates, I am not
so confident in the future of QBS. Also, if QBS is not used for all own
projects, my confidence shrinks even further.
I had a hard time getting around QBS's edges and I do not like to
transform each new project from qmake to QBS and maybe away from QBS
again it it does not stick. So if the Qt-project wants to have QBS, it's
either all in or all out. For me as a developer, I am most interested in
a clear decision, so that I know which build system to use in the future.
Please make this decision a top priority and clearly communicate the result.
