API documentation for Python GpgMe bindings?

I'd tried to play around with the (new) Python bindings announced just
a few days ago, but I am a bit lost. I am using Python-2.7 on MacOS
"El Captain", with Python-2.7, gpg2, gpgme (1.6.0_2) and the bindings
py27-pygpgme and pyme all installed using MacPorts.
(Yes, that is not the newest gpgme-1.7.0 announced last week, the
announcement last week just made me aware of the fact that there
are Python binding at all.)
I know the C-library documentation of GpgMe found here:
Is there a similar documentation for the Python bindings "pyme" (or
Google didn't return helpful results for "gpgme python api reference"
or "pyme api reference" for me.
Looking at the C-library documentation and the help() output in the
Python interpreter for pyme and objects accessible from there, I fail
to see a clear mapping on how to call various functions.
For example, I can create a GpgMe context with "ctx = pyme.core.Context()"
and find a key "key = ctx.get_key("the-key-id").
But how do I - for example - change context attributes like the
The "pyme.core.Context" object doesn't seem to have a "set_attributes"
or a "set_pinentry_mode" or anything related. I found
"pyme.pygpgme.gpgme_set_pinentry_mode()", which takes a context,
but apparently a different flavour of a "context" than returned
from "pyme.core.Context()". Trying to pass the result from
"pyme.core.Context()" to "pyme.pygpgme.gpgme_set_pinentry_mode()"
gives a type error. Also, the context from "pyme.core.Context()"
doesn't seem to have a function to retrieve the underlying gpgme
So, were can I find documentation of the Python bindings or guidelines
how to apply the C-library documentation to the pyme bindings for
Python (either 2.7 or 3.x)?
Thanks & best regards
