Re: Make cmake default

2018-06-01 Thread Rahul Huilgol
+1 Let's move to CMake. It has much better support, and it's not worth maintaining two build systems. If we really want we could maintain a make file which manages the installation of cmake and calls cmake internally! It seems easy to install cmake. There is a shell script with binary for all

Re: CI system seems to be using python3 for python2 builds

Hi Gautam, I see that ‘nosetests’ is the command used to run python2 tests. It looks like that’s being mapped to use python3. I’ve checked that this is the case on my Ubuntu instance. I need to use ‘nosetests-2.7’ to use python2 for the tests. Please check if this fix works in the build
