Point of reviews, was Fwd: Re: [Merge] lp:~timo-jyrinki/kubuntu-packaging/qtdeclarative-opensource-src_fixpkgname into lp:~kubuntu-packagers/kubuntu-packaging/qtdeclarative-opensource-src

If you look at this merge proposal, it was disapproved with a suggestion that
it was premature. Despite that, it got released and into the archive anyway.

So what's the point of review?

If the result of a negative review is "Oh, we ignored you, we'll override the
disapproval and merge anyway." Why even bother? Just merge whatever you feel

I'm starting to think Canonical's Qt5 stack should go in it's own namespace
separate from the one used by Debian/Kubuntu as was discussed at the last
vUDS. I don't sense much interest in collaboration.

This was released, and accepted during the night, so I'm going to approve this
for merging anyhow.

We try to be as quick as possible with Qt 5.3.
