Heck, yes, that would be a big difference.

Documentation says about Qt Xml "not actively maintained anymore"… whatever that means.

I heared about "deprecated" and, well, not deprecated. I had no idea there is such a state
like "Done". 

I could live with "Done". But a "deprecated" component makes me lamenting when I relied on

Is there some document describing the states and their meaning? Is there a component/state
table where we could lookup the specific states?
