If you search on the mailing list you will find at least two similar
questions: where the hell old builds or at least sources for old
versions of PyQt can be found?

I tried to find old builds of PyQt by myself without any success. All
that I found is different Linux distribution packages with older
builds --- you can try to download and build them (which should be
painful or even impossible, because they often remove all
windows-related stuff for building to reduce package size).

Also I didn't found public repository of PyQt to get sources and even
public bug tracker --- quite important things for truly open source
project. So personally I prefer using PySide (LGPL) - Python binding
for Qt similar to PyQt: http://www.pyside.org/ which has public
repository, bug tracker, wiki...

Best wishes,
