Package: mate-menu
Version: 5.7.1-1
Severity: important

I get the following error when trying to add a mate-menu applet to mate-panel

/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gi/overrides/Gtk.py:50: RuntimeWarning: You
have imported the Gtk 2.0 module.  Because Gtk 2.0 was not designed for use
with introspection some of the interfaces and API will fail.  As such this is
not supported by the pygobject development team and we encourage you to port
your app to Gtk 3 or greater. PyGTK is the recomended python module to use with
Gtk 2.0
