Yes also a short usage.

wait for unstable, I saw many archs that is failed with experimental,
from upstream cinnamon I saw some fixes for meson build (too recently
merged and too few tests), for example
that fixes build without network manager (and don't seems optional (add
nm if found) like before meson so a conditional switch should be added
in debian/rules for archs without nm)
