Other than what i.am.fedora said, which represents the actual settings for the GNOME Shell, one must keep in mind that GNOME Shell is in fact a Mutter plugin.

As such, some of the GNOME Shell settings might in fact be Mutter settings. Those can be listed with GConf in Fedora <= 16:

$ gconftool-2 -R /apps/mutter

And finally, Mutter is nothing but a fork of Metacity, and they share lots of settings (mainly to avoid porting Mutter to its own GConf keys when it's about to be ported to GSettings), so those can be obtained with the following in Fedora <= 16:

$ gconftool-2 -R /apps/metacity

For Fedora >= 17, I think that Mutter and Metacity are ported to GSettings, which means that you'd use the same command i.am.fedora provided, adapting it to the appropriate schema for each one.

gsettings utility enables you to list and modify certain properties of the GNOME Shell.

$ gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.shell
