I missed the meeting unfortunately but I feel I should comment on a few points:

CameraExtensions: This is part of jolla camera and it was written AFAICT to work
around the limitation of QtMultimedia declarative API. There is no point in allowing
this in harbour since we are moving to QtMultimedia 5.5 in order to support GStreamer 1.x
which should hopefully improve the situation.

* QtDocumentGallery: This is not maintained upstream AFAIK and we might be the only
users of such library. I would pretty much love to move away from it and use grilo
instead. Once that happens we can start allowing anything that has been migrated
in harbour.

* Thumbnailing: We have 2 thumbnails in the platform. The nemo thumbnailer which provides
only QML API (Used by UI apps) and tumbler which is used by buteo for MTP. Both of them need
to e merged together and perhaps a C++ library should be written on top of which we can have
a declarative bindings.

I have just commented on the bits I know and on why they cannot be allowed in harbour
for the time being. Help is of course greatly welcomed :-)
