Ci is publishing the src packages in here:

I'm not sure if that will be the final delivery channel, but that is the
location for now. At the moment the src is a snapshot from qt5 and its
submodules (default ones). Once we get some progress there will be
separate release branch for those components which needs one and the src
package will be made out of that.

Nope. The chosen packaging method for now is Installer Framework, same
which was used with QtSDK. There is already python scripts in
qtrepotools/release_tools dir, which are used to build the bin packages
for win, mac and linux.
