Thanks! Great to know there are more people interested in QtWebKit.

Thta's sad to see work being duplicated. You should have been notified others on the list. Nevertheless, I hope we will be able to join our work.

Like I wrote before, upstream is converging around use of CMake as *the* build system of WebKit, so it's not reasonable to resist. So I decided to go straight to CMake, despite some bias that I have against it.

I've found that WebKit team has made a great job at making their CMake build system suitable for satisfying requirements of different port. Let's use it.

> Thanks!

I think it's premature to thank me for anything yet, I've done only a tiny bit of work for this moment.

BTW, I and Julien have contributed a number of patches to WebKit trunk with a goal to fix MIPS backend. Any interested parties are welcome to join us!
