@pzz2011 this channel is dedicated to the development of a Fastbuild generator for CMake, for more general CMake questions i'd advise going to their IRC channel

Is there a way to run more low level (unit) tests that exercise the Fastbuild generator? It does not make sense to me to have to build cmake using fastbuild to test fastbuild generator. If the answer is no, are there any good opportunities to make such tests? Any ideas? What I am looking for is a way to work bottom up rather than top down. I'd guess that be more productive.

Doodly, if you're talking about making specific tests for the fastbuild generator, this is possible. You have to add more tests to the cmake suite and enable them only for fastbuild. There aren't any specific ones yet, because the standard cmake tests don't work yet.
Fastbuild has its own unit tests
But they don't test anything we're working on here
Fyi, detailed info on how to test this stuff was written here https://github.com/inbilla/CMake/wiki
It. Was written a while ago, but should help anyone joining

@pzz2011, I do not know, but another alternative would be to post on their mailing lists: https://cmake.org/mailing-lists/. Choose one depending on the type of question.
