The meson port is not fully complete yet, as there are some missing things in the doc generation steps, but for system integration or development  purposes, the port should be fully operational. This major release, including all its stable updates in the 1.26.x series, will be the last ones providing support for GNU autotools. The next major release will likely be a meson-only one, and will therefore not be based on a source release tarball any more, but on specific git tags instead.

OK. So in BR I should switch to git. I am preparing a bump right now.
