This is getting confusing ;)

My understanding is that both Fedora 14 and Ubuntu Maverick will ship with:

- gobject-introspection
- pygobject with introspection support
- typelibs for gtk2
- python 2.x

This means that authors of pygtk-based applications will be able to
port their apps to introspection in those distros without having to
build additional software.

If we told them to port their apps to Gtk3 and Python 3 ASAP, they
would need to build stuff, so probably lots of people would wait 6
months more to start porting. So most ported apps would start
appearing in distros in +12 months.

But I may have gotten things wrong with all the movement back and
forth, would be great if someone could check I'm not misunderstanding
distros' plans.
