Sorry, how does what work? gtk-doc is the tool that is used by most gnome libraries to generate the api-doc. It was written in perl and shell-script and we're now porting it to python. So this thread is mostly a heads up for the existing users.

Thanks for testing. We made more progress. Two tools left (gtkdoc-mkdb
(the biggest one) and gtkdoc-fixxref). Hopefully we're done in a week.
I've started to make the code more testable as well. Once the porting is
done, I'll report again to test this so that we can cut a release. More
cleanup then in a follow up release.
