Description Rahul Sundaram 2009-05-27 09:23:57 UTC
Description of problem:

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

I'm tending to close this as "won't fix" or "not a bug"

Is it really better? It's sound like PackageKit and PackageKit isn't a good thing!

I see no advantage for a switch to policykit right now. Let's talk about this in a few months or in a few releases.

Comment 2 John Poelstra 2009-06-08 20:18:57 UTC
Added 'FutureFeature' keyword to avoid rawhide base

Comment 3 Tim Jackson 2012-07-21 20:20:05 UTC
Having followed the Fedora feature link, looked briefly at the PolicyKit documentation and searched online for things like "PolicyKit usermode porting guide", I'm still none the wiser about how a packager migrates a working application from usermode/consolehelper to PolicyKit.

Can you offer any links to reasonably straightforward guides on how to do this that don't involve becoming a PolicyKit expert?

Hi Rahul.

How can we switch to using PK?

Any howto available?

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

I changed BackInTime to PolicyKit upstream in version 1.1.0
Current version at time of writing is 1.1.6

Comment 10 Raphael Groner 2016-02-28 22:30:24 UTC
Has this bug still any relevance, or can we close?

Comment 11 germar.reitze 2016-02-28 22:36:43 UTC
I fixed this upstream. So if you upgraded to BIT >= 1.1.0 you can close this.
