> Oh, I see the problem, I wonder why it works for me though. I think checking those files exist before adding them to the list was a bad idea in any case. Looking a the CMake docs, it seems we have other options, for example:
>  a) Assume all stable classes have an Unstable.h header and make them optional.
>     OPTIONAL: Specify that it is not an error if the file to be installed does not exist.
>  b) Use a DIRECTORY install with a FILES_MATCHING option to install only the files matching the pattern *Unstable.h.
> The problem I see with option b) is that we need the list of headers to generate the introspection files, so I guess we have to go with option a)

Actually, I think we should probably not expose unstable symbols to the gir file, since there's not way to hide them by default as we do in C (or at least I don't know how to do it). The symbols are marked as unstable in the docs, but I think bindings don't use that info at all. So for now, I would only expose stable symbols to bindings.
