Hi everyone,

My work on [1] has brought up a proposal to bump the minimum CMake
version required to build any of the CMake-based ports to 2.8.3.

[1] https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93189

The immediate benefits of this would be the possibility to use
FIND_PACKAGE_HANDLE_STANDARD_ARG()'s extended syntax and some other
syntatic sugars which would eliminate some FIXMEs from the files in

This would also make my patch [2] to rewrite FindLibSoup2.cmake a bit
smaller, and help pave the way for the rewrite of FindEFL.cmake I have
in mind (along with my "why relying solely on PKG_CHECK_MODULES() is a
bad thing" FAQ :-)

CMake 2.8.3 was tagged in early November, 2010, and is part of Ubuntu
11.04, so anyone still on 10.10 would need to upgrade.
