Yes, I agree.

I worked on a wizard to get a contribution-ready Qt/Qt Creator a while ago. I
could not automate most of the server-side configuration issues, so I never
commited that though.

The Qt Account was just getting introduced back then, so the whole registration
process was in flux, too. Maybe I could try again now that the web-side of
things apparently has stabilized. But even today we do not really have one place
where a user can set up all the required information to work with JIRA, Gerrit
and all the other Qt sites AFAIK. Having that would simplify that task a lot.

Creator could definitely help with e.g. generating SSH keys.
