Re: Proposal: Recommend meson for glib 2.58.0




Before making the switch please be aware of https://github.com/mesonbuild/meson/issues/3077 and https://github.com/mesonbuild/meson/issues/2121 which make Meson-built libraries mostly broken on macOS, particularly with regard to g-ir-scanner.

I think the risk area is python3 support on some commercially supported
distributions. Although, that is probably in better shape now than it
was a year ago.

Also not a maintainer, but +1 for the switch.
