Hi,

When trying to experiment meson build in Aravis, I notice that meson
files like "meson.build" and "meson_options.txt" are not present in
the tarball file for version 0.5.12 available in download.gnome.org
[1].  However, it is available in the tarball fiel available in
GitHub[2]

Is this expected?

Yes. Meson build is still experimental (even if it is almost feature complete with respect to autotools).

As autotools is the primary build system, I prefer to not confuse people by bundling meson files in the tarballs.

I would prefer if there was no tarball on github, but unfortunately it is not possible to disable them.

But feel free to play with the aravis meson build and report issue you may find.

        Cheers,
