GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 600271
Last modified: 2011-02-18 15:59:31 UTC
With GDBus and GSettings planned for the next release and with dconf likely to ship as part of GNOME 2.30, the first step is to get GVariant merged. The API is stable and has been used by a number of people who think that it's pretty slick.
I've created a "gvariant" branch of glib containing exactly what I propose to immediately merge. GSettings is not included, nor are the GObject serialiser bits.
I will modify the branch for comments as it is reviewed until it is ready to merge into master. Documentation has already been identified as an area that's a bit poor.
The merge blocks on bug 548967.
that was fun.
