I cannot follow this line of reasoning.
Binary downloads only help in setups without custom patches or without enough
expertise to run a git clone / configure / make. But you do have custom patches
and you do know how to build Qt.
Asking for more artifacts to be produced e.g. for Alpha releases increases
the pressure on the already difficult release process, i.e. has a high chance
of delaying final releases even more.
On the other hand you consider waiting periods of 3-4 months for a Qt release
already as problematic for your way of working. How does that fit?
