run common desktop actions without password
This package provides a set of PolicyKit privileges which allow Administrators to run common actions without being asked for their password:
* mounting and checking internal disk drives (through udisks) * setting the CPU speed and policy (through the GNOME CPU frequency applet) * setting the time and timezone (through the GNOME clock applet)
It does not change privileges for non-Administrators (users who are not in the "admin" group). So this satisfies the typical desktop/laptop use case where the user has full control over the hardware anyway.
This is implemented by shipping a pklocalauthority(8) file.
