> Previously there were discussions that we need to have a new module in Qt 6 for the Qt 5 classes that will be no longer maintained in Qt 6.
> Here are some candidates to be moved there in Qt 6 (see https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-80312):
>  *   QLinkedList
>  *   QRegExp
>  *   QStateMachine
>  *   QStringRef
>  *   QList
>  *   QJsonDocument::fromBinaryData()
> The list is not complete or final, feel free to suggest more items that you think will fit there.
> So, I would like to request a new module and repository for this.

+1 for the repository.

> Name of the repository: qt/qt5compat.git
> Description: The module contains unsupported Qt 5 APIs
> Responsible person: Sona Kurazyan

Are you a Maintainer [QUIP 2] ?
Do we require a module's responsible person to be a Maintainer ?
If yes to the former or no to the latter, I'm fine with the proposed details.

(Full disclosure: I'm in the same scrum team as Sona;
and I'm not a Maintainer.)
