I accidentally send my mail direct, instead of to the list, so now to the list again.

That's my plan, except when I find things that don't appear workable, such as no cmake-bundled FindXXX for some project.  (Over time maybe we need build up our own libraries, but I don't have enough time for that at present.)

Good to hear. In the case CMake doesn't have a bundled find file, often something can be found on other projects. On the other hand, making an own Find module is straightforward and simple if only the library and headers are needed (most likely enough to start with).
 

So far OpenSSL, Expat, and LibXml2 seem very easy to deal with on Windows based on the cmake-bundled FindXXX packages.

Good the hear, there is a big chance the CMake script will work on other platforms as well.

Do you also intend to use CMake for project file generation?
