Hi. I want to install qt 5.14.1 on appveyor's linux "pc"/runner. It works fine:
I can see insalled folders like "5.14.1", "Docs", etc. But it works slow, because I need to download qt online insaller.
There is 3 solutions and all incomplete:
1. Use offline qt installer and cache it between builds.
Looks like it is 1,2-1,3 Gb, but free accout can store only 1 Gb:
Question 1: May be open source projects can store 1,5 Gb or more?
2. May be appveyor can save qt installers and provide fast mirror for some installers/packages.
Question 2: Do you have fast mirror with open source installers like qt, kde, ubuntu packages?
3. Appveyor's windows "pc"/runners already have installed qt. In my project I need 5.14.1 and there is no repository with it.
Question 3: Can you provide appveyor's linux "pc"/runners with installed qt like you do it on windows "pc"/runners?

Please, answer 3 question and help me to complete one of this solutions. Thanks.

    1. Unfortunately caching qt installer will not speed up build process.
    2. We do not have mirrors.
    3. We plan to release new ubuntu images with preinstalled latest version of QT.
