This very interesting and constructive.

Having make the CMake files for the library I maintain, the
serialization library I have some exposure to this so I have a couple of

a) My main interest has been to use CMake to generate Xcode IDE files. I
find the settings for the Xcode IDE all over the place - same as for
Visual Studio. I find them easier to set in CMakeLists.txt.

b) I don't see where you've included the header files. I need these to
work with the IDE.

c) I see you've made provision for static and dynamic libraries. Good,
I did something similar to the same.

d) I don't see where CTest is being invoked to compile and run the tests.

Again, specific examples are very helpful in following proposals.
