First: Excellent news that this was ready for FF.

I quickly discussed this on phone with Tuukka and conclusion was same as Frederik wrote. You met the deadline and you can fix this with Tony next week to stable.

Br, Olli

I am having problems with getting the commit in that adds SPDY
functionality to QtNetwork ([1]). The problem is not the commit itself,
but the network test server apparently not installing the module for the
server correctly ([*], [2]).
I have tried to deploy the module for the server on my own test server
setup, and all auto tests work fine there; but since I don't have access
to the machines on the CI system, it is hard for me to investigate what
is going on.

I wonder whether it would be possible to get the commit in before the
feature freeze anyhow by making the auto tests insignificant for now?

Since we generally get tests to pass, I'd rather not disable any of them, not
even for new code.

The patch was ready before the feature freze, so I'd rather have you work with
Tony on getting the tests working and submit the patch to the stable branch if
the deadline is missed because of the tests not working in time.

(note, I'm not part of the release team, just suggesting this)


The new functionality is opt-in (i.e. not used by default), and given
that the current network auto tests still work (and would be tested when
cherry-picking the commit), there would be a low risk of breaking
existing code.

Please let me know what you think, I guess ultimately Lars has to decide
whether this is possible or not (or maybe somebody else, I don't know).


[*] For some strange reason, the tests pass on one machine [3] and fails
on another [4]
