Another request to all kdesupport maintainers:
KDE 4.2 will require CMake 2.6.2.

The different projects in kdesupport require different versions of CMake:

CMake 2.4.5: qca

CMake 2.6.2: kdewin32

All others require CMake 2.6.0.

It would make it easier for us, if all the projects in kdesupport also would 
require CMake 2.6.2, then the same features we can use in KDE can be used 
also in kdesupport.
Right now this is harder, since one always has to take care in which project 
of kdesupport you are editing and if you are allowed to use cmake 2.6 feature 
there or not. This will probably also introduce breakges from time to time if 
somebody adds something which requires 2.6.2 while the project says the 
minimum version is 2.4.5.

So, if you think it's a good idea, please upgrade your minimum required 
version to 2.6.2.

My guess is that it might be ok for the 2.6.0 projects to upgrade to 2.6.2, 
but I think the respective maintainers have to do this.
