At the risk of repeating myself: you present too simplistic a picture.
It sounds as if library authors either are willing to do the transition
themselves, or are happy to accept someone else writing some files that
they can then "just copy". The OP however asked about "support", which
is far more than adding some CMake files to their respective repos. It
includes helping users who run into (build) issues compiling their
library. And I still don't see where that support is going to come from.
