No more responses?
Please note that even minor (5.6.0 to 5.6.1 for instance) upgrades in
Qt version require a full rebuild of everything on the CI system, due
to effective binary incompatibility imposed by Qt's plugin loading
system (and real binary incompatibility in their private interfaces
which some parts of KDE use).
