There is also a TODO list in README.cmake:
What needs to be done?

- Add back platform specific objects.
- Fix places in the cmake files marked as todo.
- Guides are not installed.
- Release notes are not built.
- Build source package (using CPack).
  This is obsolete if we decide to release VCS snapshots instead
- Build rpm package (using CPack).
- Build dpkg package (using CPack).
  This is obsolete, we should call CMake from debian/rules instead, using dh
- Add back checkAPI target.
- Test and add support for other platforms (BSDs, OSX,
  Solaris, Win32, Win64, ...)

I would like to get the Debian package generation from CMake removed
from the list
because it is not the right way of creating Debian packages.
I have reworked the official packages to be ready to switch to CMake, please
sync from there instead.

I think it is obsolete on Windows but refactoring it makes sense.
