I most probably misinterpreted your words, because at first time I 
thought that I need some "special" form or shape of git access.

But then I went here:

I got there by following the commit that actually accounts for 
qt-creator -beta release.

There I found the following: "qbs @ 830503d"

And I built qbs commit 830503d from its git repo, and then the 
qt-creator -beta release from the -beta source tarball (without the 
bundled qbs). All seems to work fine and the packaging was made the way 
I wanted it to be.

I created a script that pulls the needed git commit and then creates 
source tarball from it.

Then the qbs build script is fed the created tarball and creates the 
package, so the workflow is maintained as if I was feeding the script 
with the official tarball release.

Now you understand how it would help :-)

As of now I won't insist, because I made my way through.
But still, if there was a -beta release of qbs, it would save some hassle.
