Subject: [Development] requesting repository for qmake2cmake tool


We're working on making the pro2cmake.py conversion tool usable for user projects (QTBUG-96799).  To avoid having to tell users to clone qtbase to use the tool, we want to put it into its own repository.

Therefore, I'd like to request a new repository:

Name: qmake2cmake
Description: QMake to CMake conversion tool Responsible person: me, joined maintainership by the build system team
Content: "git-filter-repo --subdirectory-filter util/cmake" of qtbase as baseline

I propose to place qmake2cmake under the qt namespace, because the conversion tool already proved its maturity by converting the existing Qt modules.
