PKLA format deprecated.

So on a recent (not Arch) Linux install I was trying to configure Polkit, and found no inkling nor mention of pklocalauthority. Everything was in Javascript-looking rules files instead. Did rather a lot of Googling and eventually found this: … olkit.html

The PKLA format was suddenly deprecated in favor of Javascript last year.

I wish I could avoid all this design churn, without sacrificing simple things like being about to mount stuff. Seriously, there are probably good ideas here, but config files changing without warning is very annoying.

Why again does Linux have to be so chaotic right now?

Re: PKLA format deprecated.

This is one of the (many) reasons why I never used polkit, nor consolekit before it, nor do I current use systemd's login manager stuff (though it runs anyways).

Sudo hasn't changed much.  It works.

Re: PKLA format deprecated.

What kind of warning do you have in mind? I bet there was something on the mailing list. There were forum threads.
