Sounds good to me. When roughly are you hoping to do the 8.2 release?
Asking because I have this lingering MR that fixes support for fractional
device pixel ratio in the "old"/"native" QVTKOpenGLWidget (the MR predates
the new alien one) that I've been wanting to brush up and get merged, but
work has just kept me swamped so I haven't gotten to it yet.
MR is here: https://gitlab.kitware.com/vtk/vtk/merge_requests/3973
So just wondering whether I have weeks or days to get that done.
The native QVTKOpenGLWidget is currently broken to the point of being
unusable on fractional (eg 150%) device pixel ratio (for example a
Linux/KDE machine with screen scaling set to 150%).

I'm not a dev, but this would be OK with me. We do internal Ubuntu package
builds, and as long as the versioning works well as Ubuntu package
versions, I think it sounds like a good idea (I think Debian supports just
about any versioning scheme, so no worries).
