Description of problem:
The source RPM for gnome-python2 contains bindings for GConf, however,
these are packaged up into a sub-RPM which does not appear to be
distributed in RHEL3 (not on ISOs, or in RHN). It used to be present
in RHL 8 & 9. Without these bindings being available the utility of
any GNOME python applications is somewhat limited since they can't
seemlessly integrate with the GNOME configuration sub-system.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. up2date gnome-python2-gconf
2. Write a python application including the code

import gconf


Actual Results:  $ python2
Python 2.2.3 (#1, Aug  8 2003, 08:44:02) 
[GCC 3.2.3 20030502 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.3-13)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import gconf
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: No module named gconf

Additional info:

The rpmdb-redhat package even says that this package should be present
& yet it is no where to be found:
