Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439951
Last modified: 2013-03-13 01:43:06 EDT
Description of problem:
GPK uses policy kit and the default is set to retain the authentication
permanently. I think that is unexpected behaviour. The default should be just to
retain the authentication for the current session. I would prefer a option to
retain for something like 10 minutes and the option to revoke it via a sys tray
applet like how it was before.
This is potentially a policy kit issue. Feel free to reassign if that's the case.
You _can_ revoke your authorizations using polkit-gnome-authorization.
But that is hardly a user-friendly solution. David had some plans to write an
enduser frontend for authorization handling, but I don't know when that will
