And since it is incorrect about security issues, let me be clear:

Past branches of Qt will get security advisories, to the extent of our ability 
to reproduce the issue. That definitely applies to 5.15 for a couple of years.

We will not make new releases, but we will publish patches and I will strongly 
urge that they are merged into the respective branches in Git, so they show up 
in code.qt.io and GitHub.
