[Interest] QtPdf from Qt open source online installer

I've noticed that QtPdf is missing when using open source Qt with the
online installer.
I was wondering what's the reason  for this?

As QtPDF is sold under a commercial license on the Qt marketplace I
understand it cannot be distributed as part of Qt WebEngine for commercial
But for open source users?

Also it seems that QtPDF was indeed built when the release packages were
build, but got partially removed. For instance on Windows the DLLs are
still there, and on Linux the debug symbols are still there.

That means that open source users have to build Qt PDF themselves, it is a
bit cumbersome.
