meson and ninja come in pair, and: systemd already depends on both openrc wants to switch to meson. many xorg parts depend on meson mesa & co depends on meson cmake-utils.eclass defaults to ninja as default makefile generator for EAPI=7 those are damn good reasons for inclusion, those tools becoming essential. and it's only couple of lines of text, not a big deal. and the lines are not shown if package in question is not installed. having rust in output of initial --info also can be quite handy as recent cargo/rust issue showed but yeah, pkg_info probably could deal with that for now at least. not a very popular ebuild function, never knew it existed. Thanks Kent for pointing it out. -- Georgy Yakovlev Gentoo Linux Developer
