Can you give an example of this? We use this for CMake itself and seems to work fine.

I cannot find any reference to them in

The NSIS generated installer of CMake-2.6.2 display only the license file.

I've just reinstall cmake on my win32 box using [^] and only the copyright notice appears in the NSIS wizard.

Against the CVS source tree (fresh update today), running:


give me:

./Modules/CPack.cmake:# CPACK_RESOURCE_FILE_README - ReadMe file for the project, which
./Modules/CPack.cmake:# CPACK_RESOURCE_FILE_WELCOME - Welcome file for the project, which
./Modules/CPack.cmake:cpack_check_file_exists("${CPACK_RESOURCE_FILE_README}" "readme resource")
./Modules/CPack.cmake:cpack_check_file_exists("${CPACK_RESOURCE_FILE_WELCOME}" "welcome resource")
./Modules/ <welcome file="@CPACK_RESOURCE_FILE_WELCOME_NOPATH@"/>
./Modules/ <readme file="@CPACK_RESOURCE_FILE_README_NOPATH@"/>

So it seems they are used only by package maker generator.

I guess the problem here, Bill, is one of documentation rather than on features. It's not clear from CPack's documentation which will be used.
