Hi all,
We have soft branched '5.9.3' from '5.9'. So please start using '5.9.3' for new changes targeted to Qt 5.9.3 release. Final downmerge from '5.9' to '5.9.3' will happen Wed 8th November so there should be enough time to finalize ongoing changes in '5.9' and start using '5.9.3' for new ones. 

We are targeting to release Qt 5.9.3 as soon as possible so please make sure all blockers are fixed immediately. Qt 5.9.3 blocker list here: https://bugreports.qt.io/issues/?filter=18995

We (release team) will start creating initial change files for Qt 5.9.3 now. So Maintainers: Please finalize those initial ones immediately when available. We need those now really soon to be able to proceed with final release.

Release Manager
