Description André Klapper 2010-08-06 16:37:18 UTC
Gedit uses PyGTK in /data/

As it is unlikely that anybody will continue maintaining the PyGTK stable bindings, applications using PyGTK should be ported to using the dynamic Python bindings provided by PyGObject (now that PyGI has been merged into PyGObject).
The feedback on migration provided by application maintainers will also help PyGObject to improve its dynamic bindings.

Please see for more information and guidelines.

For help there is a mailing list at . For getting involved in the development of pygobject there is a mailing list at . There is also the #python IRC channel on
