Build .pack/PK3 packages using CMake, with dependency tracking and automatic rebuilding
Hopefully the CMake migration makes this a nonissue.
As it stands right now, however, QMake appears to be the tool responsible for generating the required PK3 files (which are put in to the build root). As such, modifying plugin DEDs, etc.., requires that QMake be run again in order to regenerate the corresponding PK3 bundle.
It would probably be a good idea to figure out if QMake can generate a Make (or whatever you should generate) target to generate said bundles.

CMake doesn't make this a nonissue as such, however it should allow properly tracking the source file dependencies for changes and triggering recompiling of the packages when needed. Once
cmake-build has been merged, this would be a nice enhancement for the build system.
