Sorry, trying again....

When developing components like gnome-shell and gnome-session, I've 
found myself working in a VM and installing directly into /usr/bin. 
It's the only way I'm aware of that works. (You can try /usr/local,
then you have to hack executable paths in several projects....)

Since it was already not possible to run these components with

It was. You'd build close to the whole desktop, and end up with a
jhbuild session file you'd link in to a system directory (once). From
then on, you'd have a "jhbuild session" available as an option in gdm.

this does not seem like a regression to me. Tristan mentioned the 
future goal is to create a VM image, but one step at a time.

If you are aware of some way that you can successfully run gnome-
or gnome-session or gdm or similar components using JHBuild, I would 
love to know! gnome-shell used to be possible using 'jhbuild build 
gnome-shell' and 'jhbuild run gnome-shell -r', but the last time
worked for me was many years ago.

"When you still used X11". That worked when the shell wasn't also the
display server.

 Even trying different combinations of 
undocumented args like --nested and --wayland, I've yet to see it
in recent times.
