Re: [cdt-dev] CMake support in Eclipse CDT

Cool, thanks Martin. We have to be careful looking at it with copyrights
and stuff, unless you donate it.

In the end though, I want to build CMake support on top of the new build
system which should eliminate the problems you mention, and possibly
introduce new ones. I¹m well into the Qt qmake support and it¹s turning
out really well.

The one thing I haven¹t thought of is a CMakeLists.txt editor. We have
built a Qt .pro project file editor with a few content assist features and
the resource listeners that add/remove source files to the SOURCES list.
Would love to have something similar for CMake.

At any rate, I don¹t think I¹ll have time for that for a while. Marc-Andre
had mentioned interest in this. We¹ll see how things fall out.
