"OneConf to rule them all"

Registered by Didier Roche on 2010-04-19

The basic idea behind OneConf seems to be to save the application related information in the Ubuntu One database and allow a user to synchronize that data with other systems as needed. The application related information is this:

List of installed applications.
Some application settings.
Some application state

----
ubiquity is totally revamped this cycle and we need some ubuntuone change + design to get it available. postpone the task for this cycle.

POSTPONE default integration into ubuntu because of synchronization in desktopcouch is failing for a lot of users. Prefer to delay one cycle to let ubuntuone guys working on that and having a sweet OneConf into Natty!
