If we can just include (with CQs) cmake4eclipse in CDT and/or Eclipse for C/C++ Developers we should provide one solution for the community.

CDT ecosystem, to have a successful future, needs proper cmake support and needs to have a system that users aren't provided with confusing or incomplete solutions.

I'm with Doug here: Abandon MBS. cmake4eclipse may be the best
solution for MBS, but being based on MBS it inherits project settings
tabs that are of no use for building with cmake and just confuse
users. *Any solution based on MBS for building with cmake will suffer
from this.*
These tabs are:
Tool Settings
Build steps
Build Artifact
Tool Chain Editor: Used tools [1]
Language Mapping? (I newer figured out whats that for)
Path and Symbols : Includes
Path and Symbols : References

Oh, and I saw saw that CoreModel has some documentation now!

So Core build is the way to go.


[1] Actually it is required to have at least a compiler in the used
tools list, otherwise the Settings Entries on the Preprocessor
Includes tab will not show any paths not macros. Not sure whether that
affects the indexer.
And CUDA coders need a way to add the CUDA compiler to see their include paths.
