Just two more cents from my side,

Maybe a wip (work in progress) branch on Qt Gerrit is the better choise?

- All contributors sign the CLA, so there's no licence problems later
- You get the Qt Sanity Bot (and human reviewers) checking the coding
- The code is under broader review, maybe more contributions come in
- You make it easy for others to check out that branch and test it
- When the work is finished, the branch could easily be merged
- Further work after the initial release has to be done on Gerrit anyway

- You and your contributors need to setup and learn Gerrit,
   but you will need to anyway, and I think the other two already did :)

Personally I don't see much advantage for external developing on GitHub.

But that's just my personal opinion.

Best regards,
