Basically I wrote a gedit plugin (gedit-terminal-enhanced), but found out that the functionality I need the most can’t work since calling libvte’s
event_check_regex_simple from a python script always results in a segfault.
After debugging it, I figured out that the bug actually resides in pygobject, and I reported the issue on GitLab (see https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/pygobject/-/issues/366).
Then I managed to fix it for me and submitted that initial fix as a Merge Request (see issue above).
I’m not sure that I got this right, but the thing is… I got no response there for over 5 months, while others did.
Have I done something wrong? That MR is probably far from complete as I don’t know how to test it, however the lack of feedback makes me unable to proceed and improve my contribution.
I’m still willing to help with this issue since I use that plugin a lot, but more importantly, this bug makes the plugin unusable for others. Is there anything I could do now?
BTW: I have a similar story with a GTK issue, but I’m not capable of fixing that one by myself
