Dconf is a tool to collect a system's hardware and software configuration. It allows to take your system configuration with you or compare systems (like nodes in a cluster) to troubleshoot HW or SW problems.Dconf is also useful in projects where you have to manage changes as a team. Dconf can send out changes to your systems to a list of email addresses so that they can be revised.
As a sysadmin, you won't become too paranoid if less experienced people have root-access. As a consultant, you won't feel isolated if you don't have remote access to your systems. As a support engineer, you won't become frustrated if a customer has fiddled around with some important config file and you have to find what.
You can configure dconf to run from cron on an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis and, in case of changes, have it send out a mail. Dconf allows you to go back in time, compare older snapshots, rollback changes or even compare systems with basic text-oriented tools.
