Preventing auto-downloaded Meson dependencies

Would it not be more proper to have --wrap-mode=nofallback when using meson? I know that the official-not-official arch-meson script puts nodownload in but it might be nice to have the documentation agree. Ainola (talk) 07:37, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

Seems to be a good idea for packaging, as we prefer to handle via package. Regarding this option, meson's documentation states: Meson will not use subproject fallbacks for any dependency declarations in the build files, and will only look for them in the system. Note that this does not apply to unconditional subproject() calls, and those are meant to be used for sources that cannot be provided by the system, such as copylibs. -- Josephgbr (talk) 08:51, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
