I was talking in general about these warnings.
Typically some project  has a working build system (...otherwise it wouldn't 
build), and after updating cmake, warnings appear.
Since the build is working, there is no immediate need (for the project) to 
change anything in the buildsystem.
The project will have an urgent need to change it once the old behaviour is 
not supported anymore.
