yes, good point.

Just a technical question: if we do this after that period, what is
the process to do it for an application belonging to Gear?

Will it just be sufficient e.g. for Kate to drop the Qt 5 variants in


and require KF 6 + Qt 6 in the CMake files or is there additional stuff 
needs updates to avoids one breaks stuff?
