Thanks for the heads up.

master first makes sense if master is going to be supported going
forward, but given the extremely stale state of qt4, I don't expect
we'll be able to keep it working (at least as a complete unit) for
very much longer. And we probably shouldn't :) . At some point there
is going to be a last release that works with qt4, forever.

Would it be reasonable to disable icu usage in meta-qt4 master while
switching pyro & morty to using the icu-native package?
