Testing Qt5 Beta2 release snapshots
I tried to build Qt5 Beta2 "latest successful" snapshot today on Mac OS X 10.7.4 (Lion). It didn't complete the make -j4, it finished midway through qtbase. It didn't error, it just said there was nothing more to do for first, and the build ended.
Is reporting cutting-edge build issue found by users encouraged? For instance, is it encouraged to join the "releasing" mailing list and report such build issues?
Definitely, but you need to have some concrete things to tell the developers.
First I would suggest compiling it again without the -j option - maybe it's just make error. Trying out git head is a good idea, too.
Issues should be reported to development mailing list or to JIRA if you are sure you have found a bug.
