Sure. I share your doubts.

They seem to use it quite centrally for locating or downloading the
required external packages, and they use it to add C++11 flags.

Sure. I also will not start working on the packages until they are
released. The reason for the ITP was just to prepare it.

So, maybe we postpone the discussion (and the work on the
greatcmakecookoff package) until we have a common view on the packages
which require it?

May I ping you once this happened?

Best regards
