Going back to the original question now that the QtCS has passed.

  - Is cmake officially supported by the Qt Project ?
  - Should cmake changes go to the 'release' branch for Qt 5.1.1 ?
  - Was this even discussed during the QtCS ?

I have no strong feelings about cmake, just want to know whether a 
decision was made or not.
