Task Todo List Phasing out gconf and libglade

2019-03-27 - Balló György

GConf was used in GNOME 2 as the settings storage daemon. It's deprecated since 2010 in favor of GSettings, and does not receive any fixes since 2013. Libglade is deprecated in favor of GtkBuilder since 2009, and does not receive any fixes since then.

After a half year of the proposals[1][2], we try to get rid from these packages. This list contains all applications that depend on these libraries. If the package can be built without these libraries, do so. Otherwise, contact with upstream for a solution, or remove the package.

Updated packages can go straight to extra/community.
