Looking at the screenshots, this looks interesting, will try it tomorrow.
I didn't quite get, what's the common code base with? Is it related to 'qgit'?
I tend to prefer git in command line (eg. 'git lola' gives you this
'guitar hero' feeling [1]), but i sometimes use qgit, and QtC's own
git plugin.
My main grief with QtC git integration is the python language server
kicking in with error messages each time i open a git textual view.
I actually rarely use QtC to deal with my git workflow ( git fetch +
git rebase, or just git rebase -i), cmake is causing so much churn on
each rebase (PS: This is not a cmake rant email).
I usually prefer to switch to console mode for my git operations and
then wait for a minute or two, and switch back to QtC when the rebase
got 'digested'.
Frozen UI is the worst UX. I got to a point where i prefer to manage
my important builds manually, and only switch to QtC once the checkout
stabilise (cmake, clang code model, unit test scanner, ...).

Just random feedback really (and a bit OT)... will give it a try.
