Subject: [Boost-build] CMake Announcement from Boost Steering Committee?

Hello Boost builders

Someone brings me up the annoucement from the Steering Committee to
choose CMake as the open source build system for Boost -- reproduced
partly below:

"Therefore, we, the Steering Committee, announce to the Boost community
our desire and intent to move Boost’s build system to CMake for users
and developers alike. We are soliciting comments and proposals from the
community to guide the process and the goals. Our desire is that the
community can come to consensus by the end of the calendar year with a
vision of supporting users and developers."

I am wondering if any alternative choice as Gradle has been considered
instead of choosing CMake?

Thank for any view on this subject.

Francis ANDRE

PS: I looked for Gradle in the Boost archive on Nabble : Found 0
matching posts for *gradle* in Boost <>
