Most of this work builds upon ConsoleKit by the ever-so-awesome Jon McCann of gnome-screensaver fame. It’s not very Fedora centric so hopefully other Linux distributions (and other free UNIX-like systems like OpenSolaris and FreeBSD) will pick it up too. I’m excited, in particular, about the fact that, with infrastructure like this, we’ll be able to enhance applications to behave intelligently when f-u-s is used, e.g. pause media playback, go to away mode for IM etc.
Don’t forget the beer tonight
