The sugar-read is a massive problem for the Sugar on a Stick spin and
The fact is that the gnome team should have a plan for this as part of
their migration to the whole g*3 project. I believe that alot of the
support in those bindings is plain moving to gobject-intropection auto
generated bindings so maybe it might be worth someone from the
upstream teams that have crossover into the fedora team actually
giving feedback here. The person that comes to mind that might be able
to give direction is Colin Walters as he's intimately involved in the
introspection bindings as its possibly that the bindings that aren't
being updated already have the related bits in place.
