Sounds like you followed the process perfectly.

The one addition I would suggest is to do a git log on the affected
files, to see who might know more about them.  Unfortunately the
overwhelming majority of changes there are routine tidy-ups being done
across many files, that just happen to include these.  I did find one
contributor who'd done substantive work specific to this code, so I've
added him as a reviewer.

Nothing to worry about.  We're all a bit busy, what with Qt 6 being this
year, so review may take a while.  Patience (and sporadic pings on the
review) should suffice.
