Now that CMake is becoming a major player in Qt, we should try to improve the current CMake Manual that is part of the Qt Reference documentation: http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/cmake-manual.html

We have the following options:

  *   Improve the manual as a part of Qt docs by restructuring it and adding information
  *   Add documentation about Qt-specific features upstream to CMake documentation:  https://cmake.org/cmake/help/latest/index.html

There is already a Qt-specific section in the CMake docs that we could add Information to: https://cmake.org/cmake/help/latest/manual/cmake-qt.7.html

CMake documentation is already shipped as a Qt Help file, so we might be able to deliver it as a part of Qt docs.

If we want to keep the CMake Manual in the Qt docs, I would suggest some changes to the Manual structure.
These are described in: https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-72159

Please comment the task if you have an opinion about where the documentation should reside or ideas about how to improve it.

Best regards,
