[sorry for bringing this old stuff back]

So for 5.0.2 .. should we list all the split .tar.gz and .zip packages in a two column table ?

https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTWEBSITE-502 seems to be related. I can take care of it for 5.0.2 if we decide this is the way to go (I don't remember when this was declared "official").

ps: I am assuming that we will continue to generate the big tarballs and put them somewhere, but then won't be shown in the http://qt-project.org/downloads page.
