I talked a bit with Pascal Terjan, who packages a lot of ruby stuff for
Mandrake (BTW he's going to package Alexandria, thanks!), about that
He told me that it is up to the Mandrake package script to install the
.schemas file. So I think we should give that task to the packagers,
1) install.rb doesn't support "etc" directory, so we need to hack it ;
2) finding that gconf schemas directory is painful, because it can
change according to the distribution / OS.
Would it be hard for you to install it from the Debian build process?
