On the other hand, getting this into qt itself is not going to happen on Qt 5.3 branch (it's frozen) or 5.4 (it's also frozen), which is why I created/updated the patch for the 5.4 branch (I guess I really should have used the dev branch instead as that will become 5.5). I'm not sure if the patch will apply to 5.3 or not, the patch was changing qstandardpaths_mac.cpp which doesn't even exist in the 5.4 branch (it's qstandardpaths_mac.mm here) If it was .mm in 5.3 it should apply or would be simple to tweak so that it does apply for macports to use I guess.

Also, I think you will find that there is a change from DataLocation type to
AppDataLocation and AppLocalDataLocation types, with DataLocation
being deprecated, but still supported (== AppDataLocation, IIRC).

So, separate patches?

Cheers, Ian W.

> Could we please make sure the fix applies to Qt 5.3 also? That's what's currently in MacPorts, and unless the maintainer intends to upgrade it to 5.4 soon, that's what I'll be working on to make it co-installable with Qt4 ...
