Outdated Qt Creator on Fedora

Why is the version of Qt Creator on Fedora 34 something like 4.x, while the latest version of Qt Creator on qt.io is 6.x?

It’s version 5 in F35, and 6 in F36:

Since a version 4 to 5 update is a major change, it’s possible that the maintainers will not update the F34 version to 5 at all, as per the Fedora community updates policy:

Thank you Ankur, it’s great to know that. I was not aware of the policy. So, hopefully I can get my hands on version 5 after I update to F35.
