Thanks, Volker

The script is very understandable. When I have the time, I'll take a look at 
setting up a GitHub Action for installing Qt on their Linux and Mac hosts. I 
really need to get away from Travis, since that is taking 2-3 days to test a 
pull request.

One question: the downloads are currently anonymous. I understood from earlier 
in this thread that would not remain the case. Did I misunderstand or is that 
still a change to come?
