Hello,

Where can I find the CI scripts? If someone could give me access to Jenkins
and give me a little introduction to what's already in place for CI, I can
probably help with automating the SDK generation so that it's available
from the Qt SDK Maintenance Tool.

I am attending FOSDEM, in case you think it's easier to explain in person.
