Missing [src] link for some of the new ApiDoc pages

That link is for me the most useful feature of the new documentation pages.

For Widget pages it seems to exists, as in


on the top right. For other pages like Gio.SimpleAction or Gio.SimpleAction.new_stateful I can not find it.

If you wonder why I would like to have a look at the C sources, see https://github.com/StefanSalewski/gintro/issues/178

That’s probably because glib, gio and gobject are special, as they are below gobject-introspection in the stack. Unlike other libraries, their introspection data isn’t generated when building the library, but in gobject-introspection (using generated files that contain nothing but the extracted documentation comments).

There’s a merge request that would solve this, but it needs more testing, and it also needs to be double checked by downstreams.
