Sure - but let's think about this in a different context: imagine
someone applies at your company. You invite them to a job interview and
have one of your engineers do a technical interview with them.

Do you afterwards go to the applicant and ask them if they thought your
engineer was competent and fire your engineer if the applicant says "no"?

We shouldn't blame in the first place. We are all trying to make Qt better.
I only wish I could spend more time doing actual WORK on Qt.
