Here's a request for maintainers who are supporting both meson and Autotools: please consider adding the meson build files to your release tarballs (add them to EXTRA_DIST) if you want people to actually use the meson build system. You don't have to, but it'd be nice.

For people helping maintain the jhbuild modulesets, please do not switch modules to use meson until the meson build files have appeared in a release tarball, or you're confident they will appear in the next tarball. (Unless Autotools support has already been dropped, in which case maintainers, please follow the GNOME release cycle in making your next release!) This will reduce the amount of manual hacking required to produce release modulesets that actually build. I've temporarily switched GStreamer and Grilo back to using Autotools for this reason.
