How did you clone the Qt 5 repositories?

The "best" instructions for building Qt from git can be found at
http://qt-project.org/wiki/Building_Qt_5_from_Git -- its instructions
are to clone the root repository, and then run the `init-repository`
Perl script to clone the submodules. By default, this script doesn't
clone the repositories that are not part of the Qt 5 release.
