FWIW: I find that naming scheme *very* confusing.
It probably makes a lot of sense, but it's not very obvious to me
why "PyGObject" should be more modern than "PyGTK"; even worse:
they are incompatible which I wouldn't be able to tell by looking
at their names.

I agree it is confusing, does adding the version suffix to PyGObject help any?

I would honestly wouldn't mind if we renamed the project to PyGI. I
don't know if it helps in terms of being less confusing for people
trying to figure this stuff out, but I think it is a nicer looking
name without the baggage. Furthermore, it matches the functionality
and Python package name being provided.

I don't have a very useful suggestion, but to elaborate on the relationship
on both websites.

That's probably a good start.

Does anyone know who owns and how we can edit it?
