Really, the only thing I disagree with is that RT appears to actively discourage maintainers from updating JHbuild before everyone actually has the option to make the switch - sure, if updating GTK+ fails for me because harfbuzz gained a new dependency, I'll be able to figure out what that dependency is, what's its upstream is and whether it's available in reasonably current distros. But it'll be a lot easier and quicker for whoever made the change in the first place :-)

Maybe we should delay this until BuildStream can generate OS images. Tristan, what do you think...?

(Tristan had actually suggested backporting gnome-build-meta changes to jhbuild for some hazy amount of time; it was mainly me who wanted to be rid of JHBuild ASAP. ;)
