Hello Phil,

good to hear you're going to the contributors summit, here are my
main concerns (pretty much in line with the other responses) :

- the OpenGL requirement : will this still work decent through remote 
  desktop and citrix.  imho this is important for business 

- QML / Qt Components : having played a bit with it, I certainly
  see its value, BUT, I'm afraid of having certain functionality
  not available through C++ and hence not through PyQt. (like
  assembling QML scene).

  for PyQt applications, I see little to no value in writing a
  part of the app in Javascript/QML, on the contrary, it would
  increase complexity.  After all we have been writing our gui in a  
  dynamic language for years now.

- I'm fine with deprecating certain parts of the api, to stay lean
  and maintainable

Good luck and best regards,
