A lot of these regressions are also due to behavioral changes in Qt, but they still end up as regressions because
they require us to change the way we use Qt.

Ossy is right, this is getting way to big and we're running risk of destabilizing our foundations. At the same time
new features are being implemented at a rapid pace (maybe it's catching up with other ports or implementing
WebCore interfaces, but they're still new features).

We are now in week 18. How about we target week 20 for an concentrated effort of getting our test coverage back up? (that gives
a week to finish your pending features ;)

Who's in? :)

I finished with filing bug reports and skipping tests to paper over the
new regressions: (and to make buildbots be able to catch new regressions!)
  - [Qt] REGRESSION: 10 tests started to fail with newer Qt5
  - [Qt] REGRESSION: 350 tests started to fail with newer Qt5-WK1
  - [Qt] REGRESSION: http/tests/xmlhttprequest/basic-auth-nopassword.html started to crash with newer Qt5

Nowadays I have a strange feeling, that regressions/crashes in QtWebKit don't matter at all.
I'd be happy if I'm wrong, but the following meta bugs history cuts a poor figure:
  - meta bug for fixing crashes/assertions/timeouts with very very long
    depends on list: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=79666
  - meta bug for fixing "lighter" regressions, which cause only layout test failures
    with very very long depends on list: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=79666
