That's a possible discussion, but this was not the point of this thread (which
is about the tarball of already released versions, please recheck it). My
comments are related to those requests.

Regarding this new, different topic that you just brought up for discussion,
and waiting for some words from the remaining amarok contributors, if I had to
choose I'd advise to not deprecate the current amarok repository (whose master
is KF5-based) until we switch to Qt6.
