Because clicking through the signup process led me to the bit with the
SH key before leading me to the CLA. I interrupted the process there
because I need to get to my Linux box for the SHH key thing.

OK, will do.

I am struggling a bit with finding information on the homepage, as you
might have guessed. For example, the only reason I figured out how to
get QLinguist for Windows was a forum post by somebody having the same
question. Trying to search the web for information on where to get
lconvert or lupdate is a waste of time, so I had to resort to asking. If
it is documented on the QT homepage, it's not any place that it's easy
to find for the uninitiated.
