My own limited experience with trying to understand and code with CMake
has shown me that the support for CMake on the official CMake users list
is atrocious. Maybe it is just me, but whatever questions I have ever
asked on that mailing list have been completely ignored. So I have, and
no doubt will have, many questions I will be asking Boost developers
about CMake which I cannot understand from the official CMake
documentation. Rather than use the Boost developers mailing list as the
place to ask those questions I feel that a separate Boost mailing list
would be better, so as not to clutter the developers mailing list with
CMake related posts. But I will go with whatever others decide.
