ABRT configuration service removal

Hi all,

ABRT currently provides a D-Bus daemon, abrt-configuration, for reading and
changing the config files of ABRT and its plugins. It was introduced 6
years ago without much fanfare and its source code has not been touched
since.

The original use case seems to have been in machine provisioning, though a
quick search through GitHub and reverse dependencies suggests that it's not
used publicly in any piece of software. Hence, its removal from ABRT is
currently being considered.

Is anybody here using or aware of somebody else using the
abrt-configuration daemon in their workflow?

Kind regards,
Matěj Grabovský

Guess not, judging by the response.

I would really prefer to have ABRT use GSettings/dconf instead of
reinventing the world to save a dependency here and there. And we’re
not even talking fringe projects here, but ones that are likely already
installed.
