the following wiki page:

That page is fairly outdated. I’ll give it a bit of a spruce up.

So, is there an up-to-date Valgrind suppression file somewhere? Or is
GNOME.supp the most up-to-date?

The one I’ve been using is here:

It covers most of the GLib and GIO functionality which I’ve been using
recently. Enough to get the Walbottle tests Valgrind-clean, at least.

I do not claim it’s anything like perfect though.

I'm aware of:
  "Make GLib valgrind friendly"
But in that bug, there is no significant activity since 2013, so if
there is an up-to-date suppression file, it might make sense to
it upstream, and install it.

This has been discussed before, and I failed to do anything about it:

Installing a suppression file with GLib won’t fix everything, because
Valgrind only has one default suppression file, which we can’t modify
or add to. So even if GLib installed a suppression file, you’d have to
pass it as a --suppressions argument to Valgrind manually. However,
that is better than having to write your own suppressions file //and//
pass it in.

See here for information about default.supp:

Valgrind has a couple of bugs open about improving its support for
default suppressions. None of them have seen activity recently: (basically a duplicate)
