This one is probably not going to happen in time for 2.8.10, but thanks for the report. We'll discuss it.

I'll put it on the roadmap anyway, but it's likely we don't have enough time to address this before we do rc1 for 2.8.10...

These bugs were deferred from target version 2.8.10 to 2.8.11 based on the responses to this email thread on the CMake developer's mailing list: [^]

After fixes discussed in, [^] this is my remaining script needed to code sign CMake.


# gets the script path
# script_path=${0:a}
# gets the directory in which the script resides


if [ -z $1 ]; then
    echo "Usage: codesign_cmake /path/"
    exit 1


codesign --force --verbose --sign "$CODE_SIGN_IDENTITY" "$CMAKE_DIR"/Contents/Frameworks/QtCore.framework/Versions/4/QtCore
codesign --force --verbose --sign "$CODE_SIGN_IDENTITY" "$CMAKE_DIR"/Contents/Frameworks/QtGui.framework/Versions/4/QtGui
find "$CMAKE_DIR"/Contents/bin -type f -exec codesign --force --verbose --sign "$CODE_SIGN_IDENTITY" {} \;
find "$CMAKE_DIR"/Contents/MacOS -type f -exec codesign --force --verbose --sign "$CODE_SIGN_IDENTITY" {} \;

codesign --force --verbose --sign "$CODE_SIGN_IDENTITY" "$CMAKE_DIR"

For reference, since CMake 3.1 the OS X binaries are packaged with the CPack DragNDrop installer instead of PackageMaker:

 OS X: Package with DragNDrop instead of PackageMaker;a=commitdiff;h=dc3c2102 [^]

IIUC now one may drag -> /Applications without this prompt. Then one can run the command-line tools immediately. It is only when running the cmake-gui that code signing is enforced by OS X.

I am trying to sign CMake again to distribute to other users.

The situation has gotten worse.
Somewhere in the 10.9 timeframe, Apple tightened up the codesigning process. Among the changes are that improperly formed .framework bundles will cause an app to fail to be codesigned.

The Qt frameworks are malformed. The workaround I posted no longer works.
Qt 5.4 had the same problem. Various scripts around the net couldn't solve my Qt 5.4 problems and I had to upgrade to 5.5.1.

CMake is in a worse position since it is 4 based.

I'm not sure yet how to fix this.

I am using CMake 3.4.1. I would be happy to learn CMake has since fixed the issue.

0015507 is now fixed, allowing to actually be signed.

After 4 years now, any chance of the next release actually being signed? :)
