I wasn't sure where to put this as, while definitely used by Cinnamon,
I think this is used by Mate, as well (and possibly XFCE?). I don't
know if a mint.scm file might make any sense as it's quite literally
under the Linux Mint repo. account? If it would be better to place
this elsewhere, just let me know and I'll adjust.

I think python-build-system has a function to get this version in a
more reliable way.

The description should consist of full sentences.
Also, since X-Apps are quite specific to Linux Mint, you should
probably not take folks knowing what they are for granted.

Would you possibly know any more details on it? Just looking through the module, I don't see any functions regarding version number, I'm afraid, and it's not intuitive to me how I might use it in this context if I'm using a different build system for the package.

Fair; I'd thought about it but the example I was working off of was using G-expressions and did it this way so I just went with it.

Something I've wondered: is there a point to having the lambda arguments be "#:key outputs", if you can just use "#$output"? I've seen a few setup their lambda that way only to use "#$output" and not ever use "outputs".

I may just be missing something regarding G-expressions, though.

True but is there any easy way to specify what they're related to without making it much longer than just a synopsis?

"Cross-desktop libraries and common resources" can apply to many things and is generic to the point of being unhelpful, I'd think.

I could always do "developed by Linux Mint" instead of "for X-apps" which might be more familiar but, again, it borders to being unhelpfully unspecific, again (even if less so), to me; there are probably a lot of "Cross-desktop libraries and common resources" developed by Linux Mint. This particular library was developed for use with the X-apps they're developing, specifically.

I'm just not sure what other description would work while still being a synopsis.

Mmm; I didn't think so but you raise a good point. Lemme double check myself; I'll adjust it, if otherwise.

You're looking for the (site-packages) function. As for how to use it,
you need to "mix in" the python build system as is done for instance in
python-gst.

The outputs key comes from a time in which #$output could not yet be
used in phases. There is currently no definitely preferred flavour.

I think "Library for traditional GTK applications" would work fine,
looking at [1].

You were right about that copyright; /every/ file (which mentioned the

Sorry, this flew under the radar. Your v2 still had some minor errors,
but I have a local version that works and will be pushed with my next
