Feature request #8158

QgsNetworkAccessManager timeout should raise a more clear error message than just "Operation aborted"

Requests controlled by QgsNetworkAccessManager are aborted every 20 seconds (by default) by its timeout timer. As a result, an "Operation aborted" error is raised, what may be confusing and doesn't help to figure out the timeout period needs to be increased.

Is that a verbatim message or translated back from Polish?

The latter. I mean QNetworkReply::OperationCanceledError.

The problem is, that a timeout simply calls QNetworkReply::abort(). There is no possibility to set the reason for the abort this way, because QNetworkReply::setError is protected. Subclassing QNetworkReply seems not to be very easy, because at the same time the code from QNetworkAccessManager::createRequest would have to be copied and maintained in QgsNetworkAccessManager.

As a simple workaround, we could set a custom property on the QNetworkReply (reply->setProperty( "QgsAbortReason", "Timeout" ); or similar). Does not seem to be the most beautiful, but at least a pragmatic solution.
