For packages that have a pretty high impact, you probably should test it
before updating.

In this case 3.2.1 introduces a new dconf system which totally breaks if
you don't do some %post stuff to update the actual data file.

These instructions were clearly documented and if you'd tested the
package even minimally, you'd have seen the problem and no doubt found
this commit quickly (I saw the problem, did a temporary fix), logged in,
looked in git and found the commit immediately and then fixed the spec


So please in future, be considerate and test these packages before
pushing otherwise you'll get a lot of unhappy users who cannot log in!
