OK, you're completely right.

If qmake is the preferred build suite for QtCreator, that's fine. Let's use it.
I don't mind.

So is there an option where I can migrate a cmake project to qmake?
Or just import a cmake-project as new qmake project?
Or possibly import a netbeans project into a qmake project?

I don't and won't care about the build system, as long as it works and 
supports fine grained compiler switches ...

Cause the project is not my project.

I'm a java developer by belief and my projects will of cause be java projects. 
Actually I'd like to contribute to a C++ project, so I have to learn the 
language and use some tools that help me on that challenge.

The original build suite of the project is Makefile and has a professional 

To learn the project, I cut little pieces and work on improvements. But that 
I'll do in a sandbox, where I copy files and don't care for the build-system.

Before I started to try QtCreator, I had my sandbox project as Makefile set 
built by netbeans and as cmake project built by kdevelop. So I only wanted 
QtCreator take something already working and continue with that.
If there's an import wizard or something similar, I'm willing to change to use

May be you took me wrong.

I did not ask for help.

I just wanted to give feedback on how to improve QtCreator.

If you're interested in that discussion, we can continue to write.
If not - I can also shut up my mouth.

I have no problem with development. I know to go my way.
I just was impressed by QtCreator and as I believe, that feedback is important 
for improvement, I started to write.
