I package texworks for openSUSE, a linux distribution. I am happy to see
such a change toward using a consistent route for building texworks
across platforms. I would also like to emphasise that it would do me a
world of good if a "cheat" page could be created as a guide for
packagers. It could, for instance, list all possible configurable
options using the cmake based system, other tips, recommended practices,

Thanks and bye
