      Description

      Dear QtIFW team,

      i have noticed in my repositories Updates.xml tags like these:
      <UpdateFile CompressedSize="0" OS="Windows" UncompressedSize="0">(null)</UpdateFile>
      <UpdateFile CompressedSize="0" OS="MacOSX" UncompressedSize="0">(null)</UpdateFile>
      <UpdateFile CompressedSize="0" OS="Linux" UncompressedSize="0">(null)</UpdateFile>
      Are these documented anywhere? If not, would it be possible to have a quick overview of their purpose please?
      i would like to have a single repository supporting cross-platform installation (i'm building my installers separately on each platform for each of them right now).

      Another related question:
      i see that binarycreator accepts a "template" parameter. If i give the full path of the mac version of "installerbase" via this "template" argument when building under windows, would it work and craft a mac-ready installer?

      Thank you,
      Pierre.
