Gnome-Python 2.0.3 is now available at:

Gnome-Python provides bindings for the Gnome 2.x development platform 
libraries.  It builds on top of PyGTK, and includes bindings for the 
following GNOME libraries:

    * the GConf configuration database
    * the Bonobo component system
    * the Gnome-VFS file access library
    * support for writing panel applets and Nautilus views
    * the GtkHTML2 widget.
    * the Gnome-Print print libraries.

Gnome-Python requires PyGTK, PyORBit, Python >= 2.2 and the Gnome 2.x 
development platform to build.

PyGtk, Python and Gnome is usually included in your distribution, if not:
PyGTK can be found on
Python can be found on
Gnome libraries can be found on
