@xotkot Meson changed their tolerance level for inlaid build scripts in a recent release and the Tau editor has a bug in it being highlighted by this (c.f. This needs to get fixed upstream.

I realize upstream development isn't really active and would be happy to apply a patch here, but probably don't have time to come up with one myself. If you see one around the net or somebody wants to contribute one here please shout.

Thank you! I had to replace the dependency libhandy with libhandy0 to compile it successfully. Otherwise it aborted due to missing the file
