Conan (https://conan.io) is a C/C++ package manager, which speeds up the integration of C/C++ libraries into your own project. It's written in Python and available on probably all desktop platforms.
It offers integration into different build systems, e.g. cmake and qmake (https://docs.conan.io/en/latest/integrations).
There has been some work by Frederik Gladhorn and Ovidiu-Florin Bogdan on using Qt with KDE via Conan. We have the Bintray organizations for Qt and KDE. And there is a Qt Conan recipe made by the Bincrafters community.
It would be very useful for the community to have Qt modules available as Conan packages.
If Qt is to be shipped as separate modules, the Conan recipes can be shipped with the sources. While building the Qt binaries the Conan packages could also be built and published.
I connected this ticket to
QTBUG-74397 on the Package management part.
