I believe that this is not done because of the QPL's requirement that you       
can't distribute modified versions of Qt.  However, it shouldn't be a problem       
to put the latest public releases of Qt plus a diff from that release to      
A simple:  "cvs diff -r QT_3_1_0_BETA2" does it for me.  It should be trivial    
to write a script to pick out the last tag and put a diff on the web server.     
That said, if you can get an initial check out of qt-copy, updating it should   
be very possible via dial up.  It changes very little between syncs...  
I believe that a scientist looking at nonscientific problems is just as dumb 
as the next guy.
