Unfortunately, I don't see how we can automate these cherry-picks, as the bot will have no viable way of identifying a change as part of the old qqc2 module. Further, in the event that the change touches code of what would be both modules in the 6.2 branch, it would not be reasonable to have the bot attempt to split the change and cherry-pick bits and pieces to two repos.
I think we're stuck with the manual way unless someone has some magic dust they'd like to sprinkle right about now. I'd be all for that :)

As i understand the current intention is to merge qtquickcontrols2 dev branch into qtdeclarative dev branch, which is Qt 6.3 at the moment.
That leaves qtuickcontrols2 and qtdeclarative separate in 6.2 LTS branch.
The current cherry-pick bot can't handle cross-repo cherry-picks.
Which means any qqc2 code changes in qtdeclarative repo 6.3, 6.4, 6.5, branch will have to be replicated with a more manual process to 6.2 branch of qtquickcontrols2 repo, because 6.2 is LTS.
Can these cherry-picks be done automatically somehow? Is the manual process the one we want / are stuck with?
Is this enough justification to do the qqc2 -> qtdeclarative merge in 6.2 branch instead?
