Here's something that would be acceptable:

Do create the qt/licensing repo but make it empty, or just a README file or 
whatever is necessary. This repository can live in qt-project.org and be 
mirrored under github.com/qtproject.

In your internal infra, use a different repository branched off from the 
public one, containing the licence checker binary and anything else you may 
need. This repository should never be shared.

It's no different than my own qtbase, except that I do share it:
