Can you propose what the necessary change would be to:

Well that document is Autotools-specific. It would need to be written
from scratch for CMake following CMake conventions, and separately
again for Meson.

That is exactly the opposite of the intention of Colin's build-api
specification. The build-api is specifically written so that it
*doesn't* require every project to be built with Autotools. If it
assumed Autotools, it would be a much shorter document, starting with
"you must use Autotools" :-)


This is also my understanding. Also, adapting to the build-api is
trivial or easy enough in most cases. Or just planning for it, as
for example in:

(Only 111 and 75 lines, respectively. Zero autotools — only plain
POSIX sh and GNU Make.)
