The experience in Qt Creator, which has qmake and qbs files, is that 
most people are making the effort to update both build systems. The 
missing adaptions to qbs files was always (and still is) done manually 
by Christian.

Take-away is that you can expect people helping keeping the CMake files 
up to date, but you won't get around fixing things yourself.
