Bah... feels like every major release someone ends up sending an email
like this... but in this case, https://issues.qgis.org/issues/20262
has totally destroyed QGIS network based providers with Qt 5.11 and

This is not anyone's fault -- it's an upstream change in the Qt
library which changed some behavior we relied on. Not there fault, not
our fault. But end result is that it makes QGIS basically unusable for
any non gdal/ogr layers on Qt >= 5.11. And unfortunately our major
platforms only saw an upgrade to Qt 5.11 late in the bug fixing
period, which made this one slow to be identified.

https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/pull/8383 should fix it.

Soo.... could we break the normal cycle and get a point release out
quickly? (Ideally with a couple of days prenotice so that anyone else
working on urgent bug fixes could get them in too)
