Re: [technology-pmc] CMake as an exempt pre-req for Mihini

In our case, I am not sure we can consider CMake something that is "required exclusively to facilitate build and test.", in that without CMake it is not possible to build Mihini at all, out of the box. 
Maybe this is just a misinterpretation of pre-req on my end, but I would say that in the case of a framework technology (and more so an embedded technology, which adopters will likely want/need to build themselves for their specific targets), if you cannot build it on your own without such the 3rd party technology, it is probably a prerequisite.

WDYT?
Benjamin.

This sounds more like a "works with" dependency for build and test

Is this to be used as technology for building Minihi, or does Mihini have code that will link to CMake?

Dear PMC,

We would like to request your approval to declare CMake an exempt pre-req for the Mihini project.
CMake is a popular build management tool, licensed under the terms of the new BSD license, that simplifies cross-compilation and simplifies the management of several builds inside the same source tree.

Thanks in advance,
Benjamin.
