CMake-ified Boost ----------------- First of all, the (pristine/official) Boost project can be found on: http://www.boost.org The CMake build framework (set of CMakeLists.txt and module.cmake files) is then added on top of the official Boost release, thanks to a dedicated patch. That CMake framework (and patch) is hosted and maintained on GitHub, in the following Git repository: https://github.com/pocb/boost POCB stands for Plain Old CMake-ified Boost, as opposed to the new Ryppl initiative towards a modularised Boost, also using extensively CMake. However, as of today (June 2011), that framework does not allow easily building Boost for Linux distributions. [A clone also exists on Gitorious, where CMake-related work was formely done: http://gitorious.org/boost/cmake] Upstream work is synchronised thanks to the Ryppl's hosted Git clone: https://github.com/ryppl/boost-svn/tree/trunk A discussion explaining the details can be read on the Ryppl Google Group: https://groups.google.com/group/ryppl-dev/browse_thread/thread/4e2ffe397d03eaee/b619c95964b0e003?hl=en&#b619c95964b0e003 The Ryppl project (http://www.ryppl.org) is maintained by Eric Niebler and Dave Abrahams, from the Boost project, and is itself a lot more than just about synchronisation: "Ryppl aims to be a distributed cross-platform software management system designed to accommodate both end-users and developers. Ryppl unites version control, test management, package management, release management, reporting, and other sub-systems into a coherent and scalable software management system." That current CMake-ification (sub-)project aims to be fully integrated into the Ryppl project. There is still some work to be done on the CMake-ification of modularised Boost.
