Sorry for the late answer - I just tried again with:

- PyQt6 6.0.0.dev2011301320
- PyQt-builder 1.6.0
- sip 6.0.0.dev2011271026

And I get:

  Generating the QtCore bindings...
  sip-install: .../PyQt6-6.0.0.dev2011301320/sip/QtCore/qnamespace.sip:53: /BaseType/ is only supported for ABI v13 and later

Any idea what's going wrong there?
