How is the patched version going to be made available? Who's going to install it on all the internal HPC systems. We also had to patch cmake to make it work properly on mutrino.

The reason is that we have a minor patched version of CMake 3.3.2 [1] that runs 3x to 4x faster than CMake 2.8.11.  This will allow us to speed up our automated testing for Trilinos and make developers more productive.
