I think it would be a good idea to remove the SDK from qt-project's
Downloads page, then. On the forums I have to instruct several people
a week that they should download libraries and Creator separately
(quite literally, really - this week alone there were at least 4
threads started by people having queries about the SDK).

The problem is that the SDK is still the topmost link on the page, so
most people, and especially newbies, click it. Would be good to either
remove it, or - better - simply move it to bottom of the page or to
some "Archive"  or "Legacy" section.


PS. Pinging the development so that hopefully someone responsible for
this site sees this. Sorry for the noise.
