Hi Thiago,
now  I get confused.

When I do this I get the old code which does  not compile.
Doing cd qtbase && git checkout 5.8 gives me the new code

So what is the right tool? Why is is mentioned in the qt5 wiki Building from git?
I also have seen that I didnt get qtvirtualkeyboard just an empty directory. using
perl init-repository --module-subset=qtvirtualkeyboard -f
i get it it, but also message that the other folder are removed.
perl init-repository -f

But how is it supposed to work? How do I get the code which will become  the release candidate? Do I need to wait for a label?
