Currently VLC is built using the autotools build system, which is hard to write, extend and maintain. Therefore the goal of this project is to port VLCs build system over to the relatively new but promising meson build system. This offers more flexibility and backend choices, a powerful module extension system and WrapDB for dependency management, especially useful for larger projects like VLC with a lot of dependencies.
