Iikka is on vacation this week, but as far as I know the actual scripts we use for Qt5 packaging are public and available in qtrepotools repository.
But the latest version of scripts (what we are using right now) are not yet accepted in Gerrit: https://codereview.qt-project.org/30433 

On the other hand installer framework configurations we use to create Qt5 Beta installers as such are not public (due to links to our internal infra), but there has been efforts to synchronize these with the public configurations available from: http://qt.gitorious.org/qt/qtrepotools/trees/master/release-tools/configurations. Unfortunately I don't know what is the exact status of this synchronization effort, and I'm afraid we need to wait next Monday when Iikka is back from his vacation.
