Re: Adding Glib::IO to the released modules

I use Glib::IO and it doesn't take any special work. You can use GIR to
create a binding, and since the C library is already on the system (it has
to be to use GTK+) GIR finds it and binds it.

I know how introspection works. :-)

What I'm asking is to make a release of the existing Glib::IO module,
so that people can depend on it on CPAN and Linux distributions can
package it, like they do for Gtk3.

Hi all;

would it be possible to make a release of Glib::IO? Right now, it's
basically impossible to write idiomatic Gtk3 code — i.e. using
GtkApplication and GtkApplicationWindow — because you need to install
Glib::IO from Git, as opposed of CPAN; additionally, Linux
distribution won't package the module unless it has a release. This
makes the Perl bindings less featureful and integrated with the rest
of the GNOME platform.

I know that Glib::IO is very much experimental, but at this point all
it needs is an updated POD blurb and a simple tarball. There's also
the argument that until it gets a release, we won't see any actual
user, and thus no bug reports nor patches.
