Subpackage Descriptions
complete This is the gconf-standard metapackage. It pulls in all subpackages of gconf-standard.
primary GConf extends the concept of a configuration registry. It provides a simple way for applications and administrators to store data; often GConf is used to store preferences for applications. Some of the features of GConf are: * Documentation for each configuration key, so that administrators can better modify the value. * Notifications to interested applications when configuration data is changed. The notification service works across networks, affecting all login sessions for a single user. * Proper locking so that configuration data doesn't get corrupted when accessed by multiple applications at the same time.
