Yes, intention is to improve also the application / project examples in qtdoc repo. In addition to the Qt 6 best practices, these could also get a bit of visual or functionality polish. Problematic or unnecessary existing examples could be removed. Intention is also to adjust how the examples are categorized and thus provide these ones more towards the user (e.g. top of the Creator welcome page). Some selected examples from other repos could be moved to qtdoc and extended.

See: https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-108751 for planning related to the qtdoc examples.

Note that while qtdoc has these example apps under ‘examples/demos’ folder, they are still in principle examples of how to use Qt to make an application.

I'd like to point to https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-100100 where you can read:

"Ah, those examples are in the qtdoc repository, where nobody looks at them..."
"Back when we worked on QTBUG-98130, we forgot to add the examples in qtdoc to the list."

Are these going to receive love as well? I don't like to see scattered stuff diverge...

We have started revamping Qt examples (https://doc.qt.io/qt-6/qtexamples.html) to follow the new example development guideline: https://wiki.qt.io/Qt6/Example-Guideline.
Target is to go through all the ~600 examples and either modify according the guideline or remove, if the example is obsolete or redundant and complete this activity by the end of June 2023.
