[Releasing] Duplication of packaging effort

Hi all,

For packaging the sources, we are using (qtrepotools/release-tools/) mksrc.sh, for building the sources we use from the same location script mkqt5bld.py and for the repo creation we use (again the same location) create_installer.py. 

So all the scripts we are using are available in git, I do have some small changes that I'm planning to commit today, but I don’t' think they make a big difference between our version and the one in git right now.

If you feel there still is differences in our scripts, could you point it out for me, so I can take a closer look?

The script for packaging the source i believe is also missing from the Digia side, and would be good to keep in the public repo. 

The one in the repo is currently what's being used by the Qt Project build bots, so we are not in sync there.

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.
