Yeah, that is true, but to be realistic: We do commercial software
and even need to stick with RHEL 7 and we do what everybody else does:
Just install a proper cmake during both the CI and the normal
We even install our own compilers or at least the latest devtoolset,
otherwise RHEL 7 is useless.
I don't think the enterprise distros are anything we should really look
for determining our dependency versions.
Ignorance is bliss...
