Ah, OK, thanks Murray, I missed that when writing the new pages. I will
add that.

OK. The list we have there is much more comprehensive than the language
bindings information on I think it probably makes sense
to make the distinction about which bindings are provided in GNOME and
updated regularly (with a link to the pages) as well as
the other language bindings available.

I will update the information about the bindings following the release
schedule too - obviously this only applies to bindings we ship with the
platform, not ALL bindings listed on the features page.

I think this point is irrelevant.

I don't think we should have a separate link (i.e. in the link menu at
the top of the page) for language bindings because there isn't enough
space and it isn't as important as some of the other things we could
have on there.

To me, it is obvious that language bindings would be on the features
page if at all. If people want to find that information they will, I
really don't think you have to go out of your way to make it more

I am thinking about first time visitors looking to use the site, if they
are really interested, they are most likely to go to the Features page
and read everything they can achieve with this toolkit.
