Hello and welcome!

We have created a repository qt-creator/plugin-fossil-scm for you on gerrit:


You can clone this repository (see information on the above page), create a commit, and then push to codereview/gerrit.
After you pushed to codereview, please also enter Tobias Hunger as a reviewer, who is the official maintainer of the other version control system integrations, and can probably give helpful feedback :)

If you are new to contributing to the Qt Project:
For the details on how to contribute through codereview/gerrit, please see
Gerrit setup: https://wiki.qt.io/Setting_up_Gerrit
Gerrit introduction: https://wiki.qt.io/Gerrit_Introduction
And don’t hesitate to ask on IRC: #qt-creator on freenode

We want to start modularizing the Qt Creator repository, so not everything is pushed into the main repository.

First goal is to provide a place on codereview and code.qt.io for “add-on” plugins, and a “super” repository, which has the main Qt Creator repository and add-on plugin repositories as submodules.
This way making it much easier to find and build add-on plugins.

As a second step we also want to build and provide binaries of the add-on plugins for download.

Br, Eike
