Description of problem:

usermode/consolehelper is deprecated since Fedora has a better framework now
called PolicyKit. Please switch to using that instead

Comment 1 John Poelstra 2009-06-08 16:18:24 EDT
Added 'FutureFeature' keyword to avoid rawhide base
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2009-06-16 12:42:17 EDT
It would also be nice if it didn't use kudzu, as it's one of only two things keeping that in the distro...
Comment 3 Stewart Adam 2009-06-16 14:50:15 EDT
I'll make a note to remove the kudzu-dependent code when I have some spare time.

I'm thinking of orphaning the package and stopping development on the project anyways though (I'm also the upstream) as there isn't much of a need for users to manually add drives to /etc/fstab anymore, HAL+Gnome/KDE takes care of mounting media now.
