Take care with using the current webkit2 gtk API, the API is still
going to change in the future. Currently at least there are two bugs
with API changes and there could be more in the future until there is
an stable release:


Best option to contribute to this port is that you hang around
#webkit-gtk IRC channel (freenode) and ask about current situation
in the implementation of any of the work you want to do, and use the
webkitgtk mailinglist regarding this topic. Check the contribute
setion of the webkitgtk webpage for details:


We are still adding basic core features because there are still things
not working in the multiprocess architecture for GTK+, for instance we
are still adding the testrunner:


You can apply that patch and try to help fixing the features required
to make all the tests that are running for webkit1 work. Any patch and
proposal is welcome :).

I hope I answered the webkit2gtk+ part.
