Ignoring XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland on Gnome

I created a bug report here:

This was reported on the application picard, but a search of the entire error message:
“Warning: Ignoring XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland on Gnome. Use QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland to run on Wayland anyway.”

shows many other reported instances.

The problem doesn’t occur on KDE Plasma Wayland (which isn’t quite ready for prime time) nor X environments. When running under GNOME Wayland, I only see the error message when starting from a terminal window - otherwise application appears to run fine.

I believe this was just indicating that Qt was forced to not use Wayland, nothing major. Afaik Fedora 31 basically fixes this.
