Hello Bruno

The easiest for us is if you make a contribution to the Qt Project. We do not 
use GitHub. You can get started on contribution by reading this wiki:

Please note that we'll require you to make the contribution to Qt 6 first and 
then your patch can be backported to 5.15 and, if you think it's relevant, to 

It's not clear to me yet, despite reading the links you provided, what the 
issue is. When you write your commit, please explain in the commit message 
what the issue is and how your changes address them.
