The git-archive extension is not enabled on code.qt.io.

$ git archive --remote=git://code.qt.io/qt/qtbase.git HEAD
fatal: remote error: service not enabled: /qt/qtbase.git

Tags are releases and are available in http://download.qt.io/. They are also 
transformed by adding the generated headers and removing Git-specific files. You 
should use that.

If you need to test arbitrary commits, you should be using Git.
