I should have clarified, I'm going to work prepare for contribution this way:
- fork Qt Creator on GitHub
- create branch boostbuild-plugin branched off of the master
- import source of my plugin
- work on the plugin integration, apply necessary changes, etc.
- once the integration is completed, submit the plugin through Gerrit

I hope it's acceptable workflow, as two other developers that joined
my efforts are based on GitHub, and GitHub simlifies our collaboration a lot.

That is base on "Feature development outside of Gerrit"
