Late last night I finally made a PolicyKit release. It’s almost ready for prime time; wait a month for 0.4 to get out and I should be able to maintain a stable API.
With Richard’s great work on D-Bus system bus activation it looks like we’re soon going to have nice upstream frameworks for enabling the desktop to do privileged operations in a hopefully sane way. Instead of having each and every distribution on the planet write their own configuration tools. I, for one, really wants to see some effort of merging such things into upstream GNOME and KDE as far as possible.
