Hi Alex,

The work is done taking into considerations this link: 
Also, there were some ideas about gdal source code reorganisation in 
This is second turn of cmakefication of GDAL.
The lib_gdal repository synced with gdal trunk periodically (there is a 
python script in etc folder 
to do it). Now the sources are 2.1 release version. The different GDAL 
version support will be added in future.

I think current lib_gdal is not ready to switch trunk (not all drivers 
ready, not all bindings ready, etc.), but very close (see 
https://github.com/nextgis-borsch/lib_gdal/blob/master/README.md about 
work status).

Best regards,
