Hi all,

Branching from '5.15' to '5.15.0' is now done. So from now on all changes targeted to Qt 5.15.0 release must to be done in '5.15.0' and '5.15' is for Qt 5.15.1.
As usual no any nice-to-haves in '5.15.0' anymore. Target is to publish Qt 5.15.0 RC at the end of April and so on we really need to minimize changes in '5.15.0' from now on. So only release blockers are taken in. 

Staging in '5.15.0' is restricted to release team only and we will stage changes in automatically so no need to ping us.

And target is that after RC we don't take any fixes in. It means all known blockers (blocker list here: https://bugreports.qt.io/issues/?filter=21925 ) must be fixed before RC. If some new blockers found when testing RC we need to publish additional RC but hoping we don't need to do that...
