<navidr> Hey guys, what do you think about porting strace build system to Meson for Google Summer of Code project? Meson gets a lot of traction recently. Wayland, Systemd, mesa and many other project has been ported to it/
<esyrd> navidr: well, this would introduce a number of build dependencies both for development and distribution, what are the possible benefits of such migration?
<navidr> esyrd: ease of use and development cycle. I saw in the issues there was request about strace library for example. With that migration things would be way more clear and easier. About distribution dependency, after migration of systemd and mesa to meson, most base installation does include meson or python3 (which is only requirement for meson).

<dfpl[m]> The comprehensive test suite's project detail mentions that to write test scripts one would have to read through the syscall code.
<dfpl[m]> I would like to know which syscall testing would require me to do so.
<dfpl[m]> So that I can write test for that syscall.

<ldv> navidr: some packages are trying to get creative in what build systems they use, but strace is not among them.
<jrtc27> I think the judgement/rudeness that that conveys is a little unnecessary, regardless of the point you're making
<navidr> @ldv makes senes :)
