Well, don't expect too much too soon.
IOW, on the cmake side, I'm currently busy with integrating support for the 
IAR toolchain, support for CodeLite and the find_package()-version checking 
(all unrelated to Symbian), and on the KDE side my top priority is currently 
getting the KDE dashboards at http://my.cdash.org running smoothly (will 
announce it soon). After that, we (KDE) probably need some enhancements in 
cmake/ctest/cdash to get fine-grained notification emails from cdash (see 
And then comes the Symbian support in CMake, with my current knowledge about 
Symbian being close to zero.

So, it won't magically just happen before summer. Helping hands are needed,  
somebody who knows how to develop for Symbian.
