So this is a simple creator plugin to collect data about Qt Creator
users. That makes the scope clear to me, so I can step retract my -1
for undefined scope.

A repository in the qt-creator namespace makes sense to me for that
scope, but considering the experimental nature of this work, a
playground project might work out better. I am not deep enough in the
usual practices to have a firm opinion on that topic.
