Is it always going to be UI? Maybe a more general name would make sense?

I struggle to come up with a great name though.

The Qt Company plans to gather some usage statistics from our products, e.g. 
Qt Creator, to learn better which platforms matter to our users. There is 
indeed some overlap, but in the meantime we have settled on using 
KUserFeedback, since Volker Krause has been really helpful and it provides 
what we need. It will be interesting to see how your implementation is 

I'd vote for creating the repository, but assuming it aims to become part of 
Qt, with qt as namespace. "qt/qtuianalytics", unless someone comes up with a 
better name.
