Source: qtdeclarative-opensource-src
Version: 5.7.1-2
Severity: important

I would like to request backporting a patch from Qt 5.8+ back to Qt 5.7.1 in 
Stretch (and probably currrent Testing) in order to fix FTBFS for (currently 
ITP) package gsettings-qt [1] (LP: #1624251 #1706682)

Package "gsettings-qt" is a base dependency for various Deepin software, on 
which pkg-deepin team is working. This bug is blocking our work process now.

Ubuntu already backported this patch in 5.7.1-1ubuntu1~7.

The patch (and the unittest attached with it) can be found on Qt Code Review: 

For Debian Unstable/Testing, it would be great if you could add the patch from 
upstream so that we could continue with the ITP process for package 
"gsettings-qt". Since Qt 5.9 might be uploaded onto unstable at some certain 
time, you may instead close this bug when Qt 5.9 enters unstable.

For Debian Stretch, I would suggest making a stretch-pu so that this bug would 
not block future backporting.

Thanks, and please let me know your opinion on it.
