Is it a question because it is actually going to be impossible to have
pygtk in some distributions in a close future?
If so, which distribution, and for when?

It was a problem in Beyond Linux From Scratch, but for the moment we
have reverted to 2.42.4.

Builds fine with --disable-python.  Whether all users will find it
usable is a different matter ;-)

Yeah Python has always been an option but it is also a very important
feature of GIMP. People will not be happy if their scripts suddenly stop

This being said, we already dropped pygtk in the master branch (future Gimp
3), which now uses GObject Introspection for Python support (both 2 and 3)
and much more (we tested with success already JavaScript and Lua too, and
someone is working on Vala if not mistaken).

Now when will GIMP 3 be released? Nobody can say. We'd really like GIMP
2.10 to keep Python 2 support for as long as possible.


It's good to know that master has dropped pygtk.  Here's hoping that
GIMP 3 is ready before python-2 stops getting vulnerability fixes.
Thanks for taking your time to reply.
