I just want to add 3 things to this mail to hopefully close the thread :
- The first persons to thank are Craig and Robert. Without them, there
wouldn't be the OpenH323 stack and without that stack there wouldn't be
GnomeMeeting. The amount of work that they made is impressive.
- GConf is not crap. I don't like GConf too much myself, but it will add
interesting functionnality. However, GnomeMeeting is a Gnome program,
and as long as Gnome uses GConf, I will use GConf too. I don't think
that it is so bad, as SUN, for example, is promoting Gnome and coding
for Gnome and thus for GConf. The problem you had is not related to
GConf is my sense. It has always been easy to do an export DISPLAY to
display GnomeMeeting on another machine than the one it is running on,
and it works very well with all versions of GnomeMeeting.

- I get feedback and people on that mailing list can tell you that I'm
always listening to feedback to improve my software. I'm very open to
constructive feedback. But telling that gconf is crap only because you
had one problem is not constructive because you had no time to discover
all the possibilities offered by gconf.
