I think Mathias' point was that for *new* developers you will raise the 
barrier. If someone wants to try Qt a mandatory registration is something that 
can scare them away.  People starting to get fed up with such registrations 
everywhere, especially before they can realize if they need that tool or not.
 Existing users probably have an account anyway, for them it is just extra 
annoyance to remember the password (which is not the case for jira, gerrit, 
etc. as the browsers do that) and *might* cause problems for CI systems.
