I guess I'm kinda guilty of the eflvala bindings being broken as I used to
maintain them during some time, but those days the EFL guys did lots of
changes to the APIs which made it really difficult for me to keep the
bindings up to date, as they changed stuff faster than I could spend time
on fixing them.
After some time, things got even worse because they started changing  the
object models they were using (they are doing it nowadays too, afaik EO
hasn't stable API yet), which makes really difficult and somehow a waste of
time to maintain the bindings.

I don't know if nowadays someone else is maintaining a newer version of the
bindings in some public repo. It would be nice to know about it.

I'm not sure it's worth spending time in the eflvala bindings till EFL guys
finish with all these object model changes. As I have few time for this
right now, I don't feel like wasting it in rewriting stuff continuously.

Once these APIs get more stable, I may try creating the bindings from
scratch using them. I think I've read that with EO you define the object in
an .eo file and then you can generate code for those objects (like project
eolian), so it could be a good thing to create all or part of the vala
bindings automatically from those files.
