The current liferea package fucks up all gnome installations by making /opt/gnome/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults inaccessible for other users than root, and purging all default settings registered in the global gconf database.

gconf schemas have to be registered in a .install file in the postinstall. I take gedit.install from the gedit package as example most of the times.

The new thing we want is also de-registering gconf schemas on uninstall in the pre_install routine. I don't know if packages have this already, but upcoming gnome 2.7/2.8 will have those scripts all over the place.
This task depends upon
