I've been following the CMake threads and clearly it is a divisive
issue with folks taking up positions on both sides of the debate.
However, here's a smaller problem which I think we should just address
without endless debate:

CMake Warning at cmake/share/cmake-3.8/Modules/FindBoost.cmake:762 (message):
Imported targets not available for Boost version
Call Stack (most recent call first):
cmake/share/cmake-3.8/Modules/FindBoost.cmake:1457 (_Boost_MISSING_DEPENDENCIES)
CMakeLists.txt:67 (find_package)

Chatter on the mailing list suggests these might be of great assistance:

Perhaps the Steering Committee could focus on this smaller, worthwhile
goal to move us forward and in the process get valuable experience
that will help with the larger decisions? I don't want endless emails
and talk though, I'd like to get Beast into 1.66.0
