porting the build systems of those modules to Meson is another
legitimate way to port away from gnome-common. It would be the better

a while.

I do not want to steal the thread, but when talking about ports to
Meson, would it make sense to finally fix the infrastructure to work
with other than automake files too [1]? It's when generating the
content for developer.| Considering that plenty of
projects already use Meson, either exclusively or as an alternative for
autotools scripts, then it would be a good idea, from my point of view.
I'd help myself there, but I do no speak pythonish. I guess someone
with the knowledge would have that fixed relatively quickly.

Work is in progress to let maintainers upload tarballs with the
generate API reference for; I assume would follow the same pattern — but of course we only
have one Frederic, so help is indeed welcome.
