libglade does not depend on the gtk+ backend. So if you get a gtk+ for
win32 libglade just works. Dame for directfb backend. however I don't
know that it is the status of gtk+ directfb

This is wrong.

maemo-sdk-3.0 is bora, not mistral.

so you should have these repositories in order to get python 2.5:

http://repository.maemo.org/ bora free non-free
http://repository.maemo.org/extras bora free non-free

But notice that there are no gazpacho packages for bora, so you would
need to get them from garage/upstream by hand.

The Sardine distribution is a live distribution tracking our current
maemo blending-edge development. More info here:

I don't know where did you get that info, but it seems to be quite
outdated. From http://gazpacho.sicem.biz/ :

"One of the goals of the project is that the .glade files that Gazpacho
generates should be fully compatible with libglade so you can use
Gazpacho whatever the language your application is written with."

The point here is that gazpacho allows more thing than libglade (like
non-widgets), but those things are ignored by libglade. When GtkBuilder
code get into gtk+, gazpacho would be able to save its projects in this
new format, supporting non-widgets objects.
