There was some interest in VMS, but I don't think it went very far. If
someone has access to a
VMS machine, and they are willing to submit at least a Nightly CMake
dashboard from it.
(if not a continuous one) Then I would be happy to help with the port.
I just need to make sure
my time is not wasted in the port, as if we don't continuously test it,
it will stop working in a
short period of time. I would say for the first pass gmake would be
the best way to go.
