Description André Klapper 2010-08-06 16:59:02 UTC
Grep'ing for pygtk-2.0 it seems that this module uses the stable bindings provided by PyGTK. 

As it is unlikely that anybody will continue maintaining these 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

./src/accerciser:import pygtk

[Removing 3.0 target as this is not a hard blocker, but a nice to have]

I'm actually working on this. I have some code in a personal accerciser mirror in gitorious:

Comment 3 Javier Hernández 2011-06-24 21:52:47 UTC
I moved my personal mirror to github, and related code is in pygtk-pygi-conversion-3.0 branch [1]

At this moment I have a quite stabilized main application and two plugins, the interface view and the event monitor, so, I hope this can be finished soon.

Hello Javier, what is the status of this?
Comment 5 Javier Hernández 2011-08-22 22:58:17 UTC
Hi Javier!

At this moment this code is allocated in a separate branch in gnome's git [1], and it needs more testing/bugfixing. I'm having some problems detecting some issues (most of them with introspection), but the code is getting stable. At this moment there are a lot of changes in the a11y stack, so at this moment our work in accerciser is focused in this task.

Addingly, I'll update this bug as it needs.


Comment 6 Javier Hernández 2011-08-29 23:15:41 UTC
I'm closing this bug because 'pygi' branch has been merged into master.

At this moment there are some issues that needs some work, but the application is working as it should.
