QtSDK Source Code
Can anyone point me to the source code of the QtSDK installer (I gues nsis script)? I can't find them on gitorious or elsewehre.
Thanks for any hint in advance!

-As far as I know the Qt SDK uses BitRock InstallBuilder and is not publicly available.- See "here":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/forums/viewthread/10213/#58012.

yes, Lukas are right. BitRock InstallBuilder free for Open Source apps, but not self Open Source.
You can learn more here http://bitrock.com/
I need the QtSDK installer script/source to create a special installation with additionial features for my company/collegues. So I don't neeed the source of bitrock or whatever.
I hope now it's clear what I'm looking for ;-)

To my knowledge the Qt SDK is installed using the "Qt installer framework":https://qt.gitorious.org/qt-labs/installer-framework. It's on gitorious only and there's no elaborate documentation available online (at least as I checked some months ago, it may have changed in the meantime).
Thank you for the information. Is the "Qt installer framework" the base/framework to create a installer and has nothing to do with the QtSDK?
Is the source of the QtSDK installer not open source?

The Qt installer framework is used to create the Qt SDK installer. It's an alternative to other installer frameworks like NSIS, InnoSetup or MSI. The framework is open source.
Or what else do you mean by the term "source of the QtSDK installer"?
bq. The Qt installer framework is used to create the Qt SDK installer.
That's now clear. What I want is to use the QtSDK installer package/source, add additonal features and create a installer with the standard QtSDK and my additional packages/libs/(cross-)toolchain a.s.o.
Another way would be to use the QtSDK installer inside my own installer. Therfore the QtSDK should have commandline arguments, so I can use a silent and costum installation. That would work perfect, too. But I can't find any information to that.

I think he is saying: "Now I have the tool that builds the install image. I am wondering where I can get the manifest description that is used (as input) by that tool when it is constructing the QtSDK installation image file."
Is the manifest in gitorious somewhere?
This is exactly what I'm looking for ;-)
So if anyone can help or have information, do not hesitat ;-)
Necessitas (Android Qt port) uses custom SDK installer, based (by the looks of it) on the Qt SDK. You can ask them how they do it :) Here's Bogdan's gitorious "profile":https://gitorious.org/~taipan, or, even better, project's "homepage":http://sourceforge.net/p/necessitas/home/necessitas/.
... or ask on IRC. The installer framework guys hang out in #qt-sdk on freenode.net.
