Can anybody give me pointers on how to handle our help docs in Meson?
We have autotools magic that just takes care of translations and proper
I notice that Evolution's CMake transition includes its own build logic
for the help:
It would be a shame to go back to the days of everybody writing their
build rules for help. I don't mind carrying build utilities for Meson
or CMake in yelp-tools, if that's feasible. Or if build rules can just
get upstreamed to Meson so we don't need outside utilities, that's cool
too. Just let me know what needs to be done.
