[Interest] login.qt.io down => cannot install Qt

There was a server incident in the early hours of the night (local server time) and that was fixed as soon as there was someone in the office.

It is not mandatory to log in to install Qt.
In open source you can skip the login in the installer. (there is the option on the screen that asks for your Qt Account)
Or download the offline installer and forget the network completely.

For a commercial fresh install you do need to log in (or have the license ready), so yes it can be a problem there.
We know that every system can fail, but there needs to be some way to manage commercial licenses, in practice an online server is the best option.

Best regards,
