That is formally correct (but we could bikeshed on the meaning of 
"deprecate" in this context. Deprecate for whom?); however notice that 
TQC is the current maintainer of QBS _inside the Qt Project_:


As such, they have all the right to announce what they plan to do when 
dropping maintainership. Unless someone else steps in, the maintainer's 
decisions are final. This is true for any part of Qt in the Qt Project.

On the other hand, this means that QBS still has a home in the Qt 
Project, so if someone wants to start developing it again, the code, 
docs, bugtracker etc. can be the same ones used for the rest of Qt.
