The same can be said of autotools..

The point is I want to contribute to buildsystems themselves, as
projects. Yet it's obvious to me that cmake as a whole is a mistake, so
I can't contribute to it in good faith. The abundance of people
considering it an upgrade compared to autotools and not another
makefile hack suggests that there's little place for me in FOSS
