I wonder if this schedule leaves enough time. With the holidays 
approaching, there isn't all that much time left before 5.15 (Soft) FF. 
However, I also heard quite some items where in order to facilitate a 
smooth transition to Qt6 features in 5.15 need to be added. I'm worried 
such features could not be done in time or end up being rushed, leading 
to either problems being carried over to Qt6 or breaking changes anyway.
