I think it is of utmost importance for the survival of Qbs that it is fully
supported by an IDE like QtCreator.

What would yo define as the minimum criteria for keeping Qbs supported in Qt

Do you already have an idea when QtCreator will switch to Qt 6? Given the
current release plan https://wiki.qt.io/Qt5Releasing, I expect the first
release of Qt6 to happen around November 2020.
