    1 Dconf is a tool to collect a system's hardware and software configuration.
    2 It allows to take your system configuration with you on the road, compare
    3 identical systems (like nodes in a cluster) to troubleshoot HW or SW
    4 problems.
    6 Dconf is also useful in projects where you have to manage changes as a
    7 team. Dconf can run periodically and send out system changes to a list
    8 of email addresses so that they can be revised and discussed in group.
   10 You can customize your dconf configuration for specific needs, like making
   11 a profile of your laptop's hardware or copy specific software configuration
   12 files to send out or compare with other systems.
   14 As a sysadmin, you won't become too paranoid if less experienced people
   15 have root-access.
   17 As a consultant, you won't feel isolated if you don't have remote access
   18 to your systems.
   20 As a support engineer, you won't become frustrated if a customer has
   21 fiddled around with some important config file and you have to find which.
   23 As a performance tuner, you can capture the state of the system
   24 configuration in between performance tests/benchmarks.
