Re: Porting applications to meson

I have ported Totem to meson and submitted a patch[0]. It would be
nice if someone reviews and some testing would also be very

It hasn't been trivial as it has its own quirks and twists, but I hope
it's good enough.

Best regards,

I have been using meson for some months now at work, and I've taken
advantage of what I learned to port some applications' build systems

waiting for those patches to be reviewed, I could also help on
other applications' build systems too, although there is some work in
progress[3][4] and I would rather not start working on any random
application duplicating someone else's work.

Is there any application that no one is working on and that it would
be interesting to port it to meson?

Please, do not hesitate to contact me. I can try my best :)

If you're interested, a non-trivial application would be totem. It has
optional Python and Vala deps, an external API to port to the newer
gtk-doc, etc.

Porting any libraries in its dependency chain would also be helpful.
