Speaking as one of the CMake developers, we sometimes make breaking
changes during our RC cycles, and don't freeze the interface until the
official .0 release. There's a reason our RCs don't typically go into
production distros, and there is the possibility that JakartaEE could
do the same thing.

However, the "experimental" repo does take RC packages. Perhaps
experimental would be a better place for this?
