What is the fate of existing Boost Build Jam scripts and infrastructure? We have chosen Boost Build over CMake years ago and have made a considerable investment in creating our software build infrastructure using JAM scripts. What is to be?

Many thanks,

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.

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