Meeting notes:

  • cmake
    • Current work on conditional dependencies has been merged.
      See e.g. the new file module-dependencies.cmake in everest-core repo.
    • Question about excluding modules modules from build
      Answer: Go with the cmake parameter EVEREST_EXCLUDE_MODULES which takes a list of modules to be excluded. Same is possible with EVEREST_INCLUDE_MODULES
