Hi Cristian,

The previous email was for pyside2 . I did a few bug reports but the 
feedback was that pyside2 is frozen, there will be no fixes.

For pyside6, I'll do some bug report eventually. For now, I want first 
to stabilize the project and get a big more traction into python static 

My jira login is bluebird75 in case you need to remember.

If you want in the meantime, I can list the general class of typing 
errors made by Qt.
