It should be in the .tags file, but it's completely irrelevant since the source 
tree is modified before being packaged. I've already removed the changes to 
qglobal.h and will try to remove the remaining ones to the INSTALL, README and 
qdoc files so that the sources are exactly like the Git repository.

Then I'll change the building order so that the split-module sources are the 
exact output from git archive, which means the SHA-1 gets embedded. If the 
packager uses the --tag option when running mksrc.sh, the script will git 
archive from the tag itself, meaning that it will produce an always repeatable 
& reproduceable tarball.

We're missing the GPLv3 file in qtbase's top dir, but let's ignore that for the 
moment. The final release should have the v3 due to the requirements of the KDE 
Free Qt Foundation, but all other releases and the repository can stay
