Amen to that.

This buildsystem shakedown has been an ongoing process for months and
every time someone mentions cmake or scons on kde-code-devel a chorus
of people pipe up and say that they have no idea what is going on. If
you are interested in the buildsystem then help out DURING the
process, don't suddenly swoop in at the zero hour.

The reality is that cmake is the only realistic new buildsystem at
this point. If you are interested in finding out in detail why this is
please peruse the kde-buildsystem mailing list, rather than making
yourself look somewhat silly here. Otherwise please take the word of
the people that have been working on this all this time.
