Right now, I don't need to use sudo when interacting with systemctl for almost any operation.
The big exception is systemctl edit.
Ideally it would hook into polkit in the same way all the other systemctl commands do.
To be honest, 'systemctl edit' shouldn't even be a thing. It's already way too complicated for what it's supposed to do and adding polkit support would make things even worse. I'll leave this bug open for now in case others have a different opinion.
This is already reported upstream. IMHO, the chances this will get fixed soon(-ish) are pretty slim.
feel free to close UPSTREAM if thats more convenient and you dont see this getting fixed rhel 8 timeframe
