We haven't decided yet.

Our current idea is that what you can do is choose whether you want to 
build the bundled copies or not. If you choose not to, you need to get it 
from somewhere else.

Our intention is to also produce tarballs with the exact same releases, 
but externally. That way packagers could in theory upgrade those releases 
without touching their Qt packages.
