Yes, it would have made sense that the Qt Company waits for all modules to
be available in Qt 6 before dropping the 5.15 open support...

Also some patches have already been merged between the 5.15.2 and today. I
am thinking about this one in particular:
which is a regression from 5.15.1.
I find it kind of weird to release 5.15.2 let some patches in and then lock
the branches in the middle of the 5.15.3 development
