I think we should continue on with getting gvariant landed in glib
2.23.x (the first part will be included in a release later today, and
the rest should not take longer than a couple of weeks, at this
point). That obviously means that glib is badly missing the 2.30 api
freeze, but I don't see a good alternative to getting most things in
place in time for the 2.31 cycle.

Since nothing is using gvariant at this point, it is not huge risk,
and the rest of glib should be pretty much settled at this point.
There is a number of interesting/scary changes in glib this cycle:

- we turn on threading by default in gobject
- gio modules are loaded lazily

but this will all be completed in the release that I am doing later
today.  Let me know if you consider this acceptable.

Yes, getting GDBus done will be a struggle. It is clearly not going to
happen in the 2.23 cycle, at this point, since David, Alex and myself
are all busy with other things.
