[17:03:24] <jaheikki3> ANy additional item to the agenda?
[17:05:07] <jaheikki3> lets start from qt6.0 status
[17:05:29] <jaheikki3> Beta4 released today
[17:05:41] <jaheikki3> String Freeze is in effect
[17:06:01] <jaheikki3> RC target is still 17th November so content should be ready at the end of this week
[17:06:09] <jaheikki3> RC blocker list here: https://bugreports.qt.io/issues/?filter=22682
[17:06:34] <jaheikki3> Really many issues open at the moment. Please make sure you fix the issues from the list as soon as possible & close items when fixes are in
[17:06:49] <jaheikki3> But it seems it will be challenging to get RC out in time
[17:07:02] <jaheikki3> That's all about Qt 6.0 status. Any comments or questions?
[17:08:29] <carewolf> what are the fallback plans in case the number of bugs doesn't go down fast enough?
[17:09:12] <carewolf> more betas?
[17:09:59] <frkleint> FInish port of printsupport to Qt 6...ts ts
[17:10:13] <jaheikki3> Yes, more betas until we are ready for RC
[17:10:37] <carewolf> I think it is unrealistic to expect us to be ready one week from now
[17:10:49] <jaheikki3> We will browse through RC blosker list tomorrow to see if there is something we can live in Qt 6.0
[17:10:56] <carewolf> ok
[17:11:48] <jaheikki3> Ok, then Qt 5.15.2 status
[17:12:08] <jaheikki3> Release content almost in place; only couple of documentation changes is still under work
[17:12:51] <jaheikki3> target is to get those remaining changes in tomorrow, create final packages & get the release out later this week
[17:13:06] <jaheikki3> It will be also tight but it is still possible
[17:13:26] <jaheikki3> That's all about Qt 5.15.2 status. Any comments or questions?
[17:14:01] <The-Compiler> Might be a bit early, but is there any schedule for 5.15.3 already?
[17:14:52] <jaheikki3> The-Compiler: No, not yet
[17:16:06] <jaheikki3> It was all at this time. Let's end the meeting now & have new one Tue 17th November as planned
[17:16:15] <jaheikki3> Thanks for your participation, bye!
[17:16:17] <carewolf> bye
[17:16:21] <frkleint> bye
