My conclusion from reading this thread is that this is the way forward:

* Grantlee does not become a KF5 framework. I'll continue to make 
releases from github if needed based on Qt 5. We can consider 
re-evaluating that in the future.

* For KF6, I will submit two separate Tier 1 frameworks, in two 
different repos, what I here called ktextdocument/KF6::TextDocument and 

The two libraries are independent. Having them in the same KF* repo 
doesn't make sense.
