Or rather, maintainers: I noticed qt4-mac and qt5-mac are not maintained by the same person, which probably doesn't help the concurrency thing…

Yes, you are absolutely right.

This is a much better position for use KDE guys on MacPorts.

But perhaps this can feed itself back to the original qt*-mac ports, once
you’ve shown how it could work.


P.S.: Cross-posting this now also to MP-user, although I think this discussion should be lead on MP-devel, René!
