      Description

      I just discovered that the new creator is creating a file named <proj>.pro.user
      and it is creating another directory named:
      build-<project name>-Desktop_Qt_5_15_0_GCC_64bit-Debug.
      out side of the project directory.

      It is one directory above the project directory.

      Could this be a problem? If I save and delete the project directory, I was
      not aware of this other directory. Should it also be saved and move.
      If I reuse this project folder name is there going to be any left over
      problems of conflict with the previous project. (In my case is a reference
      to controls/@directory.qrc which no longer existed causing make problems
      because I reused a previous project definition (folder)?

      I would like to see all of the project related folders be stored under the
      project folder. creating separate folders does not seem a good practice
      especially in terms of ISO validation terms.
