Hi all,

Branching from 'dev' to '6.0' and '6.0.0' is now done.  Staging is again possible in dev as well.

So from now on
- 'dev' is for changes targeted to Qt 6.1 release
- '6.0' is for changes targeted to Qt 6.0.1 release
- '6.0.0' is for blocker fixes targeted to Qt 6.0.0 release

And because we are in cherry-pick mode please remember to use proper Pick-to: tags to get fixes in needed branches; we aren't doing any merges from dev to '6.0'/'6.0.0' or vice versa anymore.

For Qt 6.0.0 blockers I would prefer (event this isn't fully by-the-book way of doing things) to put changes directly in '6.0.0' and use ' Pick-to: dev 6.0' to speed up the progress
