Re: ABI compatibility plans

I'm mostly interested because lots of the changes that I have locally (or ones that will build on those) have ABI implications. For example, I'd like to use std::unique_ptr<QWidget> to indicate transferring ownership of a QWidget to a function rather than just having it take a QWidget*. For Windows,...

ABI compatibility plans

Qt has traditionally had very strict ABI compatibility guarantees, which comes with some pros and cons.

Re: Making contributions

Thanks for your response and I understand other things taking time, that's how life is for everyone. My primary concern was avoiding miscommunication about how contributions should work. :)

Making contributions

It seems like the method that should be used to make contributions is poorly documented. I've watched most of the talks on copperspice and I've met Barbara and Ansel in person multiple times and somehow my pull request (https://github.com/copperspice/copperspice/pull/13) took ~3 months to get merged...
