Regarding Minuet versioning itself: should I use the automatic version
numbering from release script or should I start from a 1.0.0 release?

Also, where are those release scripts stored (some repository)?

As Albert pointed out, drumstick provides no CMake related files :) so
we should handle that by ourselves.
