Hey there,

In case you are currently maintaining shiboken/pyside
for a *Linux OS, you might want to check a couple of issues
that were recently reported by the person currently
in charge of packaging Shiboken and PySide for Debian (thanks Lisandro!)

We have interacted in the past with folks maintaining the packages
for Fedora and Arch, but maybe someone else is on this list.

These issues contain some discussion on them:

https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/PYSIDE-2001 (signature_p.h, fixed)
https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/PYSIDE-2002 (shiboken path)
https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/PYSIDE-2003 (get_path scheme change)
https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/PYSIDE-2005 (soon to be merged)
https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/PYSIDE-2009 (cmake dir name change)
https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/PYSIDE-2010 (arch qualified so)
https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/PYSIDE-2020 (installation path)

Even if you have no problem with the suggested solution
or build process change, please let us know as well with a comment.

The changes might break your current packaging workflow,
so your opinion is crucial.

Thanks for your time!
