    Port build system to Meson. Bug 777044. · 01c13f72
    Niels De Graef authored
    Some remarks:
    
    * Note that Meson adds a hard dependency on Python 3.
    
    * All dependencies and defines are now listed together.
    
    * Some build files were put in their respective subdirectories, e.g. the Geary
      engine library will be built from the Meson file in `src/engine`.
    
    * `--fatal-warnings` is no longer an explicit flag, as Meson provides
      `-Dwerror=true` for this.
    
    * An explicit resource file needs to be used. The issue to support this from
      Meson itself can be found at https://github.com/mesonbuild/meson/issues/706 .
    
    * The `gnome.yelp()` function parses a LINGUAS file so we no longer need to keep
      track of all languages in our build system.
    
    * There are no Debian scripts defined in the meson.build files to keep them
      clean, but they can be kept as separate scripts in `build-aux`.
    
    * Left out the `dist` target as there is now `ninja dist`
    
    * `geary-docs` is disabled by default, as valadoc-0.38.3 returns errors.
