I would like to make a suggestion.

-bash-4.3$ rpm -qa | grep -i "polkit"

That is the current output of the packages installed on my system (yes polkit-gnome got removed just after that output).

As you see there seem to be some sort of naming convention (as I would describe it) for postfix'ing all packages with polkit-*

It would be nice to have xfce-polkit renamed to polkit-xfce to fit better into this convention.

This is a backported package build from SRPM for Fedora 22... in case you wonder why there is such a package.

Sorry, xfce-polkit is the original upstream name. Besides it's another separate upstream and *not* a part of that official polkit upstream. Therefore I do not want to change.

Kevin, what do you think about this?

I don't see any need to change the name. 

If you can convince upstream to change we could follow suit, but it seems like a lot of makework. ;)

Sorry again, but a name change does not make any sense to me.
