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.
