---------------------------------------

             Summary: Ensure that the cmake build knows about all source files in the autotools
build
                 Key: MESOS-8994
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MESOS-8994
             Project: Mesos
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: build, cmake
            Reporter: Benjamin Bannier


We currently maintain two build systems in parallel with autotools still being used by the
larger part of contributors and cmake catching up in terms of coverage and features.

 

This has lead to situations where certain features were added only to the autotools build
while updating the cmake build was either implicitly (without creating a ticket) deferred
or forgotten. Identifying such missing coverage makes it harder to gauge where the two build
systems stand in terms of feature parity and how much work is left before autotools can be
retired.

We should update the cmake build setup to explicitly check whether any sources files (headers
and sources) unknown to it exist in the tree. Until full parity is reached we would likely
need to maintain a whitelist of files known to be missing in the cmake build (this whitelist
would at the same time serve as a {{TODO}} list). The LLVM project uses the following function
to perform closely related work, https://github.com/llvm-mirror/llvm/blob/master/cmake/modules/LLVMProcessSources.cmake#L70-L111.
