Found it, but I remembered somewhat wrong. I was thinking of this note
by Volker in the recent "A monologue about platforms in the Qt world"
thread [1]:

"Why don’t we make the exact way of turning a clean Linux
distro-install into a "Qt reference configuration" available to
everyone else? The way build machines are provisioned in Coin is
rather opaque, even with some of the respective provisioning scripts
available in the qt5.git repo [1]. Having to document on a
(notoriously outdated) wiki how to set up things to build Qt from
source, when we have that knowledge literally codified somewhere for
Coin, doesn’t seem effective."

So that was more about making the provisioning process for a
"reference" build machine more transparent.
