Timo Jyrinki has proposed merging lp:~timo-jyrinki/kubuntu-packaging/qtchooser_qmlscene_fallback into lp:~kubuntu-packagers/kubuntu-packaging/qtchooser.

Commit message:
* Add a proposed patch from upstream:
  - Implement-fallback-mechanism.patch
* Modify the proposed to patch to be more restrictive by only whitelisting
  qmlscene to be handled.

Requested reviews:
  Kubuntu Packagers (kubuntu-packagers)

For more details, see:

RFC, a way to make a proposed patch not accepted by upstream restricted to qmlscene only.

Can be tested by:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:canonical-qt5-edgers/qt5-beta1
sudo apt update
sudo apt dist-upgrade

on Ubuntu 14.10.

Upstream discussion: https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/82702/

Unanswered questions, feel free to answer:
- are we happy with this kind of delta to upstream, or should we try to propose still another iteration of the patch (see upstream discussion)?
- would Debian want this (they have not so far distro patched), would KDE/Kubuntu want this, and would they want it in its original form instead of the restricted-to-qmlscene? if not, are they ok with us doing this special treatment of qmlscene?
Your team Kubuntu Packagers is requested to review the proposed merge of lp:~timo-jyrinki/kubuntu-packaging/qtchooser_qmlscene_fallback into lp:~kubuntu-packagers/kubuntu-packaging/qtchooser.
