Description:

The 1.18 release was packaged using the meson build system instead of autotools, and that came with a bunch of side effects, e.g.:
https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mobile-broadband/ModemManager/-/issues/436
https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mobile-broadband/ModemManager/-/issues/433

We're fixing these issues upstream and they'll be available in 1.18.2, but meanwhile, would it make sense to switch back to autotools?
This task depends upon

If you can get these fixed relatively quickly (I can cherry-pick from master) that would be great; I would prefer to keep Meson.

I'm thinking in releasing 1.18.2 with most of those fixes; I assume that's also a good enough option.
