TQC actively courted that industry, but it does not mean that they intended
Qt to be part of the functional safety stack.

As a proof to my above statement I bring you the Qt Safe Renderer. It is a
commercial product from TQC targeted to functional safety industry, so yes
TQC has courted this industry.
However, it also means that Qt itself was never meant to be a part of the
functional safety stack and is not supposed to mess with it.

The issue at hand here is not that Roland has a valid grievance or not. At
least some of the issues he raised are valid.
The issue is that his emails are numerous and have a very low signal/noise
ratio, that he is borderline insulting to anyone who is out of his industry
and that in the end it lowers the value users are getting from this mailing

And personally I'd add that he is so badly advocating for his grievance
that I'd prefer him not to advocate for the points where I agree with him.
