Sure. Right now, Pierre is the only maintainer of the cmake scripts.
As he got further commitments, he won't have the time to maintain the
scripts for the next few years, which is why he plans to remove the
support for it again.
I just disabled the default compilation of cmake to ensure nightly
builds for OS X on PowerPC-based Macs which was broken due to the
recent upgrade to 2.6.0. Obviously, my commit can easily be reverted
as soon as we get it working on this platform. I really don't oppose
the usage of cmake within VLC's build system. However, thanks to
courmisch's recent improvements to our traditional build system, the
need to switch to cmake got less urgent. In fact, I don't really know
whether it is still needed at all.
