I wanted to ask you about this myself, but release load kept
pushing this further. I'm glad you raised this yourself.

I share the same opinion.

Yes, I guess such patch can be RFCed to be applied to .dev and later
backported to stable.

I guess it's not the case when something should be done about
QPEApplication::qpeDir(), right? Will commit later.

We already discussed this I believe - any "today" is better than
"tomorrow" IMHO ;-). I remember you sent the key already? Can you
login? If no, please ping coreteam list.
Otherwise, I'd like to invite to take release management
responsibilities for this and make a plan. I'd be glad to help, but
holidays are being, I'm soon will be out of this hyperactivity period
(as usual, I'm trying to do as much as possible when I can, well
anticipating that such time won't last long), and I don't feel like lead
on this. For a week or so I'll still be around with good inet
connection, and can help with image building/uploading (I don't think
it's practical/realistical to use Angstrom autobuild server for this
