I don't think it's clear to all of us. I have read some of the threads on 
kde-core-devel about the build system and only remember that some pretty 
strong objections where voiced about cmake. How does it come that it's now 
clear that we use cmake? Is there an executive summary of how and why this 
decision was made?

Please make the procedure much more transparent. I have no idea how you 
reached the decision, who has taken it, what were the reasons, and what 
consequences it will have.
