Sorry, I think for GSoC 2022, it's too late to propose such radical change 
which replaces Qt by EFL.

Also I'm afraid that the number of the volunteers who can maintain the 
softwares dependent with EFL is much smaller than those with Qt.

you should have used the EFL toolkit

  * C code

like one for desktop, one for smartphone, etc...)

examples of EFL usage:

but i don't think you will switch to the EFL :-)

Dear Werner, Charlie,

In the case of Ubuntu, the versions of Qt are following.

18.04LTS (until April 2023): 5.9.5
20.04LTS (until April 2025): 5.12.8
21.10: 5.12.2
22.04LTS (until April 2027): 5.15.3
Kinetic:  5.15.4

I think supporting Qt 5.12 is helpful for lazy late adapters like me :-),
but Charlie, please don't spend much time for them. As Werner comments,
notification "your Qt is too old to build ftinspect" is sufficient goal
for GSoC project.

Please add code to the meson and cmake build files that checks whether

Qt5 versions :-)

OK, I've push the reverted version with check conditions in CMake and
Meson scripts to the `gsoc-2022-chariri-3` branch (open a new branch
in case you want to still use Qt 5.12 to checkout my progress).

I've updated my openSUSE box, and I'm now using Qt 5.15.2.  However, I
still ask you to adjust the meson and cmake build files to request a
proper minimum version for Qt (this is not urgent, though).

Let me know if the old `gsoc-2022-chariri-2` (containing the 5.12
workaround) is no longer needed.

I don't need it, thanks.
