I've been reading cmake documentation lately digging if it is feasible to migrate to cmake. I think it is possible and recommended because the only past person that dominates autotools is pabs and I don't believe he would return in a mid term.
But as nikitakit mentioned, those two conditions are not met by me or by him. I've talked to eldruin about that issue and he thinks that cmake is a good change and a chance to spread out the project for windows and mac.
I suggest to cover those aspects (synfig code understanding and cmake better domain) before try a transition. Meanwhile the studio code revision by nikitakit is a good exercise and needed to do for core too. Transition for cmake must pass by that step.
needs your help!
