You are right, it's not 100% a manylinux1,
you can find some comments about it here:

I totally understand,
and hopefully we can work on this, even adopt a new scheme like 
manylinux2014, but at the moment it's still in our backlog.

We are generating the wheels in Qt's CI, and particularly on RHEL7, 
which is the minimum requirement to build Qt.

If you have more questions,
let us know.
