QT LTS no longer open source

QT is no longer applying fixes to the open-source versions of the LTS branches.

open-core (new features being proprietary) is one thing, but it seems
surprising to make security fixes proprietary.

I remember the QT/GTK kerfluffle with gnome and kde long ago, where the
gnome people were concerned about QT not really being Free Software and
thinking it best not to use it.   It seems they were right :-(

It seems obvious that there might be a Free maintenance fork, but not
much else is obvious.   I'm curious if anyone knows anything concrete.
