You want to do some research on this before leaping in to do too much
work. In aprticular, have a look at the gconf-list archives. Last year,
somebody posted an RFC about an LDAP solution (there was even some
sample code, from memory).

Also somebody brought up on that list (in August) about the problem of
making LDAP do notifications of changes (which is a required property
for GConf). At the time, the people who knew stuff thought this wasn't
possible, but they may be wrong.

This part of the thread is now off-topic for desktop-devel, so I'll
leave it here and you can start some discussion on gconf-list if you


Honk if you love peace and quiet.
