Description Iakov Karpov 2020-07-18 07:48:52 UTC
Meson 0.55 depends on python3-setuptools package, without it build fails. Adding python3-setuptools to BuildRequires for a package is a quick workaround, but I believe it should be added to Requires of meson.
Comment 1 Dominique Leuenberger 2021-09-14 06:40:19 UTC
we have patches in our meson package to avoid setuptools.

with meson being in the distro bootstrap, something like setuptools is just too expensive
