[pacman-dev] [PATCH 0/3] meson updates

Let's take advantage of the latest version of meson to make our
meson.build smaller!

New in 0.51 is also the dep.get_variable() function which is
"a generic replacement for type specific variable getters"
but I decided not to bother using it since it doesn't actually make
get_pkgconfig_variable() shorter and the only benefit would be allowing
us to also detect bash-completion using cmake (!!!) and there really is
no need to pander to that.

Eli Schwartz (3):
  meson: bump the minimum supported version of meson to 0.51
  meson: use not_found_message when dependencies are not found
  meson: use dependency('gpgme') exclusively
