I have a few questions:
- is it possible to cross compile Qt in one go (just like we do with qmake)?
- if you'll not support/trash all .pro/.pri files how we'll push fixes for 5.15
branch ? Because right now we can't push fixes directly to 5.15. branch and all
the fixes must go trough dev branch first.
