Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 502753
switch to using PolicyKit
Last modified: 2014-08-16 20:28:39 EDT
Description of problem:
usermode/consolehelper is deprecated since Fedora has a better framework now
called PolicyKit. Please switch to using that instead
Fine, but where's the porting guide for converting consolehelper apps to use PolicyKit?
The only porting guide I've found is http://cgit.freedesktop.org/PolicyKit/tree/docs/PORTING-GUIDE - PolicyKit to polkit1.
consolehelper and PolicyKit is not really at the same level. So it is not really a port. You can look at how PackageKit does it for example. Might be overkill for Preupgrade. So I will it upto to you.
Added 'FutureFeature' keyword to avoid rawhide base
