gst-validate meson support missing from release tarball
Last modified: 2018-11-03 11:08:12 UTC
meson.build is not listed in EXTRA_DIST causing the file to be omitted from release tarball.
There's more going on than just that.
The whole gst-devtools module setup is a bit weird, basically the validate tarball is made from a subdirectory in the git module, but the top-level meson.build is the one that includes the project().
So the meson support is not really shippable in a tarball as-is.
I think what's needed is probably something to tell Meson for subprojects that the actual subproject is in a sub-directory of the git checkout.
(The Meson subproject angle comes is because of gst-build.)

I thought that gst-devtools should be a coeherent project in meson when I went that road, then you have gst-validate (which tbh I would rather move to -base at some point) and other devtools. In the current context where we still have autotools in the way, it looks messy, but I think in the long run it would be better, don't you think?
