GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 626250
gedit-bugreport.sh.in: Migrate from PyGTK to PyGObject introspection-based bindings
Last modified: 2011-03-14 16:29:57 UTC
Gedit uses PyGTK in /data/gedit-bugreport.sh.in.
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 http://live.gnome.org/GnomeGoals/PythonIntrospectionPorting for more information and guidelines.
For help there is a mailing list at http://www.daa.com.au/mailman/listinfo/pygtk . For getting involved in the development of pygobject there is a mailing list at http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/python-hackers-list . There is also the #python IRC channel on irc.gimp.net.
Is this script still being used by anyone? It was used by bugbuddy but I don't know what's the state of it now.
[Removing 3.0 target as this is not a hard blocker, but a nice to have]
This problem has been fixed in the development version. The fix will be available in the next major software release. Thank you for your bug report.
