Re: GNOME 3 cleanup status update

As a user of the python bindings a clarification of the current status
of things and the remaining TODO list would be very helpful. I admit I
have not been following closely, but I bet I am not the only one who
does not know the answers to do these questions:

 - how far is pygi from being production ready? What is missing?
 - which packages are needed to use pygi bindings?
 - how do pygi bindings play with current bindings? Can they be mixed in
the same application? If yes, mixed how (e.g. can bindings to the same
lib be used together)?
 - how much different is the api? How big is the porting effort? Is
there still a way to provide "pythonic" api e.g. functions returning a
 - what is the status of pygi and python3? Could it make sense to target
python3 with pygi so that people make a single transition in their code?
 - what is the status of pygi (and introspection in general) with regard
to portability to Windows and OSX?
