[Development] Qt 5.13 feature freeze is getting closer

Well even for TP there should be some consensus on whether it should be part of Qt or not, no?

We are lacking documentation on the process here, all I could find was https://wiki.qt.io/Creating_a_new_module_or_tool_for_Qt#Graduating_from_the_Playground.

“This decision is done on the qt-development mailing list, based on the technical and spirit fit to Qt, and it requires the approval of the Chief Maintainer.”

To my knowledge this has not happened at all. There was only a repository request so far, none for integrating it into the product line.

That is beside all the concerns about the quality of the code and missing actions to fix these.

In Nov, there was long discussion in review:
https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/240347/ Request was initially for
both: plugin and library - latter was transformed to Qt module.

Given that this is a complete surprise, I don't think we can find enough time
to do a review of it as a module in time for 5.13.

As far as I understood it the request was for a TP status, not a fully supported module.

In particular, I want to
take a look to see how it can integrate with a project my team is working on:

Why should that project influence a telemetry module for Qt?

So I think that for 5.13, the module can be at no higher state than
experimental. That will allow getting API reviews and testing by others.

See above, I don’t think anything else was being asked for.
