There actually is a ci producing linux packages daily. With those the problem is that while building in ubuntu 12.04, it creates not so nice dependency to glibc2.15. But hopefully we get some older distro set-up already this week so that those can be made widely available.
Mac packages are pending, while qt-project don't have any mac nodes at the moment, but that issue should get sorted out pretty soon. Once we have those there is ready scripts to be run on regular basis.
Win is the one which is now lacking most. The build nodes do exist, but I haven't got time to play with those. If someone has time to create simple script which builds all sub-modules and creates 7z out of those, feel free to contribute.

That's a good question. I recommend we start producing packages now and
release as alpha2 the first one that we get to compile and consider to be at
least the same quality as the first alpha.

We should then continue producing packages periodically, checking the binary
package builds and beta blocker tasks. Once we're satisfied with it, we release
the 5.0 beta package.

Note that we're now 5 weeks away from the QtCS. I do expect to require at
least 4 weeks to get the beta out.
