    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? 
There is a standalone component (that can be deployed to an embedded target), but the integration and control from within QtCreator is really nice, especially with the editing of QML logic or UI in QtC for controlling simulations.

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

As I mentioned in another reply, the issue is that QtC changes APIs every release and that is difficult to maintain separate from QtC.
