Re: Documentation for build system setup

Is worth to mention this is how gnome-builder starts a new autotools project:

See it is a simple python script based on language, but lack information about where all those files come from like definition of

That plugin could be itself a spin-off from gnome-builder to automate best practices to start a GNOME like project, but as ebassi says, there's only recommendations not mandatory rules

It might be more helpful to provide a listing that omits both
glib-gettextize and intltoolize and then add a paragraph explaining to
add these for project that use either of these tools. If I understand
right both a deprecated anyway and should not be needed for
state-of-the-art projects.

Maybe write something like this:

If you are still using the deprecated glib-gettextize, then add the following line immediately before

    glib-gettextize --force --copy || exit 1

If you are still using the almost obsolete intltoolize, then add the following line immediately before

    intltoolize --force --copy --automake || exit 1
