In the docs it says
'     (NOTE:  All documentation are licensed under the FDL,
     regardless of what license the application uses) -->
but the docs are under CC-BY-SA 4.0.  I guess this is from an old
template, do you remember where the template is?

Have you considered making upnp-player-qt a KDE project to get it more
exposure?  It could even be a Framework.
Then again README.packagers says
'UPnP/DLNA via unreleased UPNPQT library is currently broken. Please
consider not building it.'
It might be worth noting that in the cmake output even if it's not
found so people don't spend time looking for it.

I found it needed these runtime bits which aren't listed in the README.packagers

Do you have a GPG key published and able to sign tars?  This seems to
trip up a lot of developers at release time.

Well done on a great new app!
