Hey ho,

I’ve recently been doing a bit of work to automate the testing of the online installer and the Qt packages through minicoin [1] recently; check 


for a cmake script that downloads the Qt Online installer and installs the latest Qt 6 snapshot, on any host platform Qt supports.

I’m running things regularly on local and cloud-hosted VMs running Windows10, macOS, and Ubuntu. FWIW, the xdotool stuff is only needed because I also want to run some basic tests that require a user session.
