Sascha, please keep me on cc if you want me to notice your replies. I
sort all messages from mailing-lists into separate folders that I
quickly check for interesting threads only when I have some free time.

OTOH, I won't cc you because you told me that you find it annoying.

I've put my very simple recipe for testing collaboration here:


Is there a better place? I'm glad to write any amount of documentation
needed if it's a step in the direction of killing support for multiple
user profiles in Sugar and the complexity that goes with it :-)

PS: I spoke to tomeu & marcopg on IRC. Another reason for keeping
GConf-dbus around is letting users test sugar without system-wide
installation of new schemas.

There doesn't seem to be an easy way to allow local schemas. Because
GConf-dbus is such a huge PITA, perhaps we could live with this
annoyance of requiring users to do "sudo gconftool..." every time they
need to update schemas?
