Thanks for the offer, Heiko. "Works for me" when it comes to trying to avoid 
release work :P so would happily pick up that.

>From a pragmatic world approach I would still think that... anyway, main 
motive is to get the Qt6 ports of both out next and have releases 
"automated"/"schedule-forced" as ensured perspective :) Even more with the bad 
fonts finally fixed while at it, which annoyed me for years.

So in case the last-minute door to 24.05 will not open here after any more 
discussion, would then approach you about further steps directly, thanks 
Guess I would get serious here around end of April, for some rough planning 
from my side. New version numbers had already been set in the code (and also 
registered at, just letting current code changes sink in a bit 
(and be processed by the good bloody-edge consumers) before moving on :)
