Yeah. If we want to get all changes from '5.14' to Qt 5.15.0 we has to close it before RC & also do the final merge from '5.14' to '5.15.0' before it. Because we aren't planning to do new releases from '5.14' should we just remove staging option from '5.14' already now to be able to do final merge from '5.14' to '5.15' before final downmerge to '5.15.0'? I think we should.
