release team is dealing with right now. Currently, we only maintain the
JHBuild modulesets, and that's not great because it's not what users
actually use.

Users aren't using Jhbuild?  What are they using?  I'm asking because in
our newcomer documentation we are asking them to use JHBuild.  So I'm
trying to understand why there is a dichotomy.

I do not use JHBuild, as I rarely need it — and when it may be needed, it
feels clumsy. For 99% of my needs a ~130-line shell script [1] which sets
the environment in a way similar to how JHBuild does is enough. I do not
mind having to manually building a coupld of dependency modules now and
then, as for me most of the time the distribution (Arch Linux) has recent
enough packages.
