Hey look I didn't start to offend anybody about their work, but just get
some realistic here;
1. Have you even try to read people's comments on that link I've shared?
(Yes they are practically begging JetBrains)
2. Have you ever used ANY JetBrains product before? for how long? then
you'll see there the huge difference between JOY of coding and JOB of
3. And yes I don't see any other way IF you want to be part of the solution
instead of being in denial!

"and don’t intend on putting in any work yourself, even though it’s an open
source project."
I would put my work if it would mean something; trying to make such
revolutionarising move on the existing QtCreator would practically
re-writing it all from scratch while there are more convinient ways such as
moving to intellij platform or just simply wrting a plugin for CLion maybe?
