A Qt Core maintainer who isn't a Qt employee?

IIRC, David Faure is the original author of the QSP class, but maybe not of the actual Mac implementation. David was constructive enough in the past in his feedback on my patch, though we did have some disagreements and we never got around to sitting down to get it sorted out once and for all.

Note that I wouldn't really mind upstreaming only a minimal change to QSP, as long as that doesn't make achieving my patch more complicated (or worse, requires a serious overhaul of all my current KF5 ports).
I really am quite happy with how my current patch works; it allows all KF5 software that doesn't do Mac-incompatible things to work (almost) "out of the box". It also allows me to focus on function over form so to speak ("form" being the way how/where things are installed/bundled).
