However, the lack of inside determination to feature Qbs as the primary make system has stalled the acceptance and development of Qbs. Qbs is a great improvement but lacks appropriate documentation,

Please... file bug reports with what you think is missing. We feel that we're already doing a far better job than we did with qmake and want to make sure that Qbs has great documentation as it is very critical. I also do my best to make sure all qbs related questions on Stack Overflow are answered.

Let me clarify: internally at The Qt Company we made the decision that Qbs will become the default build system for Qt 6. Technically the Qt Project has not yet made that decision but once the formalities are gone through, we will almost inevitably come to the same conclusion.
