Type for manipulating gconf
|Affected Puppet version:||development||Branch:|
Currently we’re managing GNOME mandatory policy by carting around a monolithic /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory/%gonf-tree.xml, which is a bit ghetto. It makes it difficult to have any granularity in what the mandatory policy contains.
I was thinking that it’d be cool if Puppet had gconf support directory, so in the DSL, you’d specify that you wanted something set, and it’d run gconftool for you, and make the necessary modifications
