I've updated this set of patches for cmake 3.1.0-rc2 (I can post the builds
if anyone would like to test them) at
As with 3.0.2, there is no difference in the number of CMake's self-tests
that fail with unpatched sources from upstream vs applying Yaakov's set of
patches (with my updates so they apply to the latest version). I don't
see anything using cygwin_conv_to_win32 in 3.x, there are some uses of
cygwin_conv_path which are disabled by Yaakov's patches however.

I'm still willing to adopt the package, it appears Bill has been too busy
to upload a more recent version over the past 6 weeks.

Yaakov (or anyone else), is there any way you can provide test cases
that would fail without applying each of these patches? I can pursue
adding such cases to CMake's test suite and working to get the patches
incorporated upstream.
