With CMake 3.7 [1] or later, it is possible to generate the date with TIMESTAMP


The date could be also added to project-config-version.cmake.in

With CMake 3.10 [2] or later there should be the %B for long month
name available.

I'm not sure if that would help for source package generation though.

Alternatively, at release point, generate VERSION and RELEASED text
one-liner files which are read by CMake and all config header etc. is generated.
