> The too short version: ACME is a simulation tool, allowing you to create a project that can run in QtCreator and quickly implement interfaces (e.g., DBus, QtRemoteObjects, etc) to feed other components.  You can directly edit properties and/or send signals, or you can create custom logic and user interfaces in Qt/QML.

This sounds a bit like a standalone tool? Or one that wouldn’t necessarily need to be in the Qt Creator repository? Can you expand a bit on why a branch is needed?

This sounds like something that a separate repository would solve, with a submodule e.g. if you want to update based on creator changes.
