Having trouble with `meson` plugin

Hi everyone, you’re all so great.

Trying to snap up https://github.com/wwmm/pulseeffects, it’s a meson project, and snapcraft it complaining of an invalid meson.build file:

Meson encountered an error in file meson.build, line 1 column 0:
Not enough arguments to project(). Needs at least the project name and one language

Of course, there’s a meson.build file in the project root directory, it looks valid to me (a non-meson user), but I noticed there’s also a second meson.build file in the data/ folder. Could this second file, which doesn’t have a project() property, be the culprit?
