"meson dist" fails after successful "meson compile"

Hi all,

I am currently trying to migrate from autotools to meson in the meson feature branch for Gnome Commander. But I am stuck with the following:

meson setup builddir → works
meson compile -C builddir → works
meson install -C builddir → works
meson test -C builddir → works
meson dist -C builddir → fails with

builddir/meson-private/dist-unpack/gnome-commander-1.15.0/src/meson.build:179:0: ERROR: Non-existent build file 'src/tags/meson.build'

A full log can be found at /home/uwe/Programmieren/Projekte/gnome-commander/builddir/meson-private/dist-build/meson-logs/meson-log.txt
Running Meson on distribution package failed

Does somebody have an idea what’s going on here? I don’t have an idea why this meson.build file is missing in the packed file. In my source tree this file is existing. I did not read anything in the meson documentation that I have to add those files manually. Can somebody guide me? Btw, I’m using meson version 0.63.3.

Thank you very much

You forgot to git-add src/tags/meson.build.

Uooo, thank you. There was an entry in my .gitignore which has hidden this file.
