need me to add anything specific to keep continuous happy for the

Here's a request for maintainers who are supporting both meson and 
Autotools: please consider adding the meson build files to your
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
in a release tarball, or you're confident they will appear in the
tarball. (Unless Autotools support has already been dropped, in
case maintainers, please follow the GNOME release cycle in making
next release!) This will reduce the amount of manual hacking
to produce release modulesets that actually build. I've temporarily 
switched GStreamer and Grilo back to using Autotools for this reason.

What was the problem with Grilo's meson support?

We have a bug opened for a regression with the 0.4.0 version, but the
meson build works as expected in jhbuild.
