Hello dear developers!

Appeal to developers of two projects: CMake and Qt :-)

This discussion affects both communities.

CPack IFW generator generates installers with a graphical user interface using Qt Installer Framework.

The code generator already in the thread "release":


The generator is accompanied by a documentation module CPackIFW", which is included in the CMake documentation.

I want to know that this generator has followers and users.

I want documentation about this generator was in the right places.

I need feedback and suggestions for further development.

In the discussion participated Stephen Kelly. He gave some interesting links.

I can't do everything myself and hope for the community :-)
