Description Matthias Clasen 2014-04-24 18:47:47 UTC
It is awkward that even the readonly apis are behind polkit - I should be able to read zone configuration without needing to be root. That also goes for the zone config files - the descriptions in there is not exposed through the api, and the files are only readable as root.

I actually already moved the readonly functions under 'always authorized' polkit action (PK_ACTION_INFO). [1]
However Thomas don't want this for 'server' so here (attached patch) I move the functions into separate polkit actions.
The idea is to have separate org.fedoraproject.FirewallD1.policy files for server and for desktop, where on desktop the implicit authorizations for these new actions will be 'yes' instead of 'auth_admin_keep'.

With the following commit one just needs to run 'firewall-offline-cmd --policy-desktop' to change the Polkit actions to 'desktop':
