I add the following lines to the Info.plist of my app build with py2app.

	<string>MYAPP wants to access bluetooth</string>

This works only if running the final build. I did not find a way to use QBluetooth on current macOS under Python3/PyQt6 on running from source. I tried to add those lines to the "Python Launcher" (and by this perhaps invalidating its code signature) without any success.
