 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.


Problem with grilo is there are no meson build files in the latest release tarballs, and the modulesets need to work when converted to tarballs for our release process.

By the way, I'm told the latest GStreamer tarballs are unproblematic, so I switched it back to Meson. Turns out I just forgot to remove our GStreamer version limit that we had used for 3.24. We don't have any way to automatically handle unstable versions of dependencies that aren't using the GNOME release cycle but which we still want to build from git usually. :(
