No problem for the reference, it doesn't really matter who objected and exactly why. As far as I'm concerned you could just have introduced a port:qt512, or do maintainers with commit rights have to ask permission for new ports too?

You could also have argued that it makes more sense for environments like MacPorts to provide LTS versions only if they exist.. Just updating the checksums in the module array must be tedious, time-consuming and error-prone, or do you have a script for that? I have one for the 60+ KF5 frameworks, but for those I only store the checksums in a lookup table so that's a lot less complex.

Part of the errors can be avoided by disabling the mapbox-gl plugin (requires a paying license anyway to be useful).
