GConf is a configuration database system for storing application
preferences. It supports default or mandatory settings set by the
administrator, and changes to the database are instantly applied to all
running applications. It is written for the GNOME desktop but doesn't
require it.
This package contains introspection data for GConf. It can be used by
packages using the GIRepository format to generate dynamic bindings.
