[pygtk] Reporting bugs in PyGTK

Hi all,

I wonder if somebody could point me at some guidelines regarding bugs in 

Every time I come across some issue I always wonder whether it should be 
reported as a PyGTK bug or a GTK+ bug. As I only use GTK+ via PyGTK I 
can't always make this distinction. But I guess PyGTK is a fairly thin 
layer on top of GTK+ so I mostly suspect GTK+...

My questions:
a) Do the GTK+ people accept example code using Python and PyGTK? Or do 
they need C examples that use GTK+ directly? I guess some of them might 
not speak python...
b) Do the PyGTK people mind getting masses of bugs assigned to them that 
are actually GTK+ issues? Or will they freely and quickly reassign them 
with a smile and some helpful additional info?
c) If you're unsure, what should you do by default?
