QtCreator: difference between importing Git and Gitorious repos

  • Hi.

    When I click 'Create new project' in QtCreator, it allows me to import an existing project from a VCS, and shows a list of supported version control systems. In this list, there is a dedicated entry called 'Gitorious'.

    Why is it so special? AFAIK Gitorious uses Git, and support of generic Git repos is under the 'Git' entry of the VCS list. Why making a dedicated 'Gitorious' entry?

    All Qt source code is hosted by Gitorious, perhaps it is there for convenience. Or it is there to allow some additional protocols, I do not know.
