you're only one person, so having just one account is fine. just
associate both addresses and both CLAs with it - ultimately, it's your
responsibility to submit code as the right "persona" (with the right
address) anyway.

email delivery in gerrit is unfortunately determined by the publicly
displayed primary address, so people would see your non-intel address
in the reviewer list. this doesn't seem like a big deal.
however, there is actually a catch ... this address is also used for the
reviewed-by footers, and that might indeed be considered a big deal. :/

here's an idea: we can make an email alias on the qt-project mta (which
gerrit uses for notifications), so your account (and list activity)
would look all intel-y, but all mail would actually go elsewhere. this
would affect all and only your qt-project activity, so this should be ok
from a legal perspective.
