Five years ago (!!) I developed a C++/Qml GPS logging app but I couldn't ship it in Jolla store (harbour) because the Qt5-QtLocation library was not an allowed dependency. My yaml file is still using:

  - sailfishapp >= 1.0.9
  - Qt5Core
  - Qt5Qml
  - Qt5Quick
  - Qt5Positioning

  - qt5-qtlocation >= 5.2

It has been successfully running from SailfishOS 1.1 to across Jolla 1 and Xperia X, but even the latest Sailfish SDK 2.2.4 doesn't allow that dependency yet (SailfishOS 3.1 still ships the so-called "experimental" QtLocation 5.2.2), while the SDK compile messages do not help:

ERROR [qt5-qtlocation] Dependency not allowed
INFO [harbour-gpstuff] Please see our FAQ here: https://harbour.jolla.com/faq#2.6.0 how to use '__provides_exclude_from' and '__requires_exclude' .spec file to avoid that

Will one day Qt5-QtLocation be allowed?
