Only if you implement it or find someone who implements that feature in
2 or 3 weeks ;)

However from what I know the kdev3 projects generated by cmake are
pretty good to work with. And they force you to learn cmake ;)

Well, last discussion about this was: With KDE 3.5.5, although we didn't
even release the latest beta2 yes. So it might take a bit longer than
beginning of Oct.

I talked to a few kde dev's about cmake vs. autotools, not one of them
wanted autotools back. Actually they are so easy I could fix some minor
issues in kdevelop-pg and provide patches to Jakob, without reading any
tutorial on cmake...


A vivid and creative mind characterizes you.
