This is well understandable and expected. The Qt Company is prepared to handle the Qt 5.15 LTS phase work. I wanted to ask if there is interest, as there may be some external maintainers who are interested in what goes into the commercial-only LTS releases e.g. due to having customers using those.

Tend to agree with Thiago.
If there is a decision to close 5.15 sources, there'll be no more work from external/unpaid contributors.

There is no interest in on part.

That means I will not be participating in the development of those fixes,
commenting on what's appropriate or not, reviewing backports, or bug reports.
In fact, bug reports that cannot be reproduced on 6.0 will also be closed.
