I didn't mean to sugggest there was any kind or conclusion or decision 
made, nor to express any personal preference on the matter. I do by no 
means presume to speak for the Qt project anywhere, let alone here :-) I 
was just giving an observation that a) the discussion has been done 
before, and b) work is being done on QBS, and added to that my own 
expectation that, based on these observations, I think a switch to CMake 
will not happen. I apologize if that was unclear.
