During the last GUADEC the vision on lockdown editor specifics got quite clear:
- The information about which user has which profile is stored in AccountsService. The newest changes are found in forked repository. It allows basic reading and writing of profile information.
- I previously hacked gnome-control-center to support different user roles. At the time the back-end wasn’t decided yet, so I now I will update it to get data from AccountsService. This time I hope to get g-c-c to compile with jhbuild.
- The profiles themselves will be in keyfile format, so they should be easily editable by hand. This should make the lockdown usable even before the lockdown editor itself is made.
