Description Matt Turner 2019-01-11 22:30:05 UTC
Similar to how the configuration command line is saved in autotools' config.log, there needs to be a way to retrieve this information from Meson.

Dylan is working on this with the upstream Meson project and has plans for a stop-gap solution as well.
Comment 1 Eric Engestrom 2019-01-31 16:16:03 UTC
There is an open issue upstream for a better solution:


But in the mean time, Dylan wrote a script that does it for us.

    meson: Add a script to extract the cmd line used for meson
    Upstream I'm persuing a more comprehensive solution, but this should
    prove a suitable stop-gap measure in the meantime.

The script is bin/meson-cmd-extract.py and you simply pass it the build directory, and it prints all the options back.

Marking this bug as fixed, as we have a solution for Mesa.
