Currently the (challening) plan is to move completely from gconf to
dconf in the 2.31 cycle.

If I get it right (probably not, so feel free to correct me), this
requires GDbus, GVariant and GSettings to be included in a glib release
that should happen before GNOME 2.30 release in March.

According to both GDbus and GVariant
branches are currently awaiting a review. Also, there is a GSettings
branch at but I don't
know its status.

Any updates?
Is it still realistic to get these requirements in very soon as a
preparation for the dconf move in 2.31? Or can we bury the dconf plan
for GNOME 3 because there's not much progress in glib?
