No, I agree with you.

We need to have all the features complete and documented, all modules 
compiling and building together and we need to have source packages.

The first item was required before the feature was integrated. There should be 
no incomplete features in any official branch.

The second one should be happening by way of the CI checks, but we may have a 
delay in the master full build and we need a check of that. It means we need 
to do the git branches after the next qt5.git integration.

And then we need to produce buildable packages.
