[Development] Configure command lines of official Qt releases

It's a little tricky, but you can reverse engineer it :)

The releases are spun from qt5.git. So if you take the 5.12.3 release, for example then using git tag -l you can see a v5.12.3 tag in the qt5.git repository.

A quick git show on that tag leads you to

    commit 8337e20fadddf7f9c3407f69e620f96d6c189685

, which is the last commit that went into the release (last submodule update).

If you search for that commit in Gerrit, you'll find


, the corresponding change. At the bottom of that page you'll find the report from the CI about the successful integration, which leads to

    https://testresults.qt.io/coin/integration/qt/qt5/tasks/1554952272 .

That page shows the builds of all modules, where the build of qtbase is relevant for what you're looking for. For the qtbase build you'll see a lot of configurations, but the ones that have the "Packaging" feature under "Coin Features" are the ones that will be used for the binary ... packages :)

If you peek into the build log then you'll see the entire configure line that was used to build the binaries in the CI, which are the same binaries that are packaged and distributed for release.

Subject: [Development] Configure command lines of official Qt releases


where can I find the configure command lines that have been used for Qt
binary releases provided at https://download.qt.io/official_releases/qt/ ?

Is there also more information available about the environment they have
been built on? I am particularly interested in the Linux release.
