From the user's perspective, users shouldn't have to build their own system libraries. From the developers point-of-view, the rules are actually readable, understandable, and it takes as long to build libfprint and the docs as it did just running configure. So I'm fine with the drawbacks :) > And actually there's quite a few ones who want to try it out but > don't have that much experience with build systems. If anyone has problems updating the Makefile.am/configure.ac rules for their WIP drivers, let me know. FWIW, unless additional files or libraries are needed, you'd only need to add the driver name to "all_drivers" in the top-level meson.build, and add a conditional in the "foreach driver: drivers" loop in libfprint/meson.build. > I'd like to follow the updates in the new repo but it won't let me > sign in.
