I don't understand why we should stick to a given version. Every fixes
we do in Qt5 (which is on-going dev version, so read a lot) and then
QtWebKit will be slown down by the fact that we need to :
- ask Ossy to update the bot.
- wait the bot to be updated.
- warn the ML
- finally cq+
Yesterday a build fix (the drag and drop stuff) was hold, blocking a
lot of people because of the bot. I gave up and apply the patch
I know Ossy is very sensible about the bot but the WK2 one is not
public, Qt5 is still a very moving target with quality control and a
set of keys (the CI ones) that we could stick with.
What about updating it every day at a given time. Worst case a patch
in QtWebKit will not be stuck for long, it doesn't require Ossy to be
always available and it helps us to fix both Qt5 and QtWebKit at a
QA is good, QA is important, but QA should not slow down developement,
it rather helps it to get better. Today it feels on the way rather
than helping us like WK1 bots are doing.
/me expects an angry Ossy answer :D
