If you’re using Git, you can use –module-subset when initialising the 
repository to only clone the modules you’re interested in:

perl init-repository –module-subset=qtbase,qtblah

either) and are facing a build error in qtvirtualkeyboard „Module quick not 

Is QtQuick now mandatory, or is this a known bug? And why is the virtual 
keyboard building at all when choosing L-GPL? That’s not very nice.
