+2, let's do this.

We also just talked about this during the BOF. Noone said they have any 
serious blockers except the deadlock we are working on. So getting 5.0.1 out 
as quickly as possible would be awesome to have.

Indeed, I think it's good to release this in the future for new releases. Can 
you document how you do all that (if you haven't, already)? I heard you are 
planning to upstream the scripts to do that as well, very cool and welcome!

Just note that here at Akademy, Gregor Mi is trying to use the AppImage and I 
/think/ he's seeing a lot of issues that are due to it. Like missing sqlite 
plugin which breaks QtHelp and stuff like that? Are you aware of that? Afaik 
Gregor is reporting bugs for that. Gregor, if that is not the case, please 
report everything :)
