The GNOME team is an advocate of aggressively removing obsolete
packages, but in this case, there are still 151 packages using GConf in
unstable. Just because GNOME has migrated away from it doesn’t mean it
isn’t still widely used. It is even used as a GSettings backend by some
people who don’t like the faster binary format dconf uses.
