Hello Debian QT/KDE maintainers
First, let me apologize for having uploaded the new pulseaudio without
gconf without notifying you. For some reason, I forgot there was plasma-pa
as reverse dependency.

Indeed. While pulseaudio can build a gconf or a gsettings backend, building
both is not advisable and would lead to confusion, as changes would not be
synchronized between the modules. Therefore I have removed the gconf module.
The only reverse dependencies are plasma-pa and paprefs. paprefs is already
fixed upstream and I'm only waiting on a release to upload to debian. That
would leave plasma-pa to be fixed.

Note that I do not plan to reintroduce the gconf module, so fixing this in
plasma-pa is important.
