Re: [Fwd: Bug#959057: RFS: dh-cmake/0.4 [ITP] -- Debhelper programs for CMake projects]

Dear Kyle,

I'm willing to sponsor this.

It overlaps /complements a package I maintain "ecbuild", which is a set
of cmake macros and wrappers used by ECMWF (www.ecmwf.int) for their
software stack.
At the moment ecbuild provides some standard flags, etc when
--buildsystem=ecbuild is used  but the plan is to expand this for other
cmake fragments and dependencies similar to work here Packages in the
ECMWF stack typically include cmake fragments in
/usr/lib/$arch/cmake/$package/* which define for example which libraries
and headers are needed; eg. when something at the botttom of the stack
is built with libjemalloc, packages throughout the stack now need to
link against it and include libjemalloc-dev in the dependencies for
their libX-dev packages. ;

this can be managed better with work in ecbuild or dh-cmake.

Best regards
