The group of cmake developers is small. It's about 4 people at Kitware, and 
then mostly me and two other guys outside of Kitware who commit C++ sources I 
think (but there are more module maintainers).
What we do mostly does not overlap, so e.g. I don't feel the need to check 
what e.g. Eric is doing currently.
The cmake git stage is basically for announcing "please merge this next week 
into master".
For other things using github or gitorious is recommended.
...and maybe gerrit in the future.
Bigger things which need coordination are discussed on the mailing list first.
Since last year doing a patch release every three months is planned, features 
are discussed at the beginning of the period (the last time with an actual 
phone conference).

So, not sure there is in this regard much to learn for KDE.
