policykit-1 (0.105-14.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Fix FTBFS on non-linux/non-systemd. (Closes: #798769)
2015-11-23 - Martin Pitt <>
policykit-1 (0.105-14) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/policykit-1.preinst: Use systemctl unmask instead of direct symlink
removal for consistency.
* Fix handling of multi-line helper output. Thanks Dariusz Gadomski! Patch
backported from upstream master. (LP: #1510824)
2015-10-21 - Martin Pitt <>
policykit-1 (0.105-13) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/policykit-1.{pre,pos}inst: Temporarily mask polkitd.service while
policykit-1 is unpackaged but not yet configured. During that time we
don't yet have our D-Bus policy in /etc so that polkitd cannot work yet.
This can be dropped once the D-Bus policy moves to /usr.
(Closes: #794723, LP: #1447654)
2015-09-11 - Simon McVittie <>
policykit-1 (0.105-12) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload
* Replace 03_complete_session.patch with a change from upstream
which seems like a more correct solution for LP#445303, LP#649939
* 05_revert-admin-identities-unix-group-wheel.patch: remove confusing
staff -> desktop_admin_r change in a man page (desktop_admin_r looks
vaguely like a SELinux role but is actually being used as a group);
keep only the actual functional change. This matches the syntactically
different but functionally similar change in experimental.
* 09_pam_environment.patch: replace with the version that went upstream.
* Annotate remaining patches with a bit more information.
They are:
- 00git_fix_memleak.patch, 00git_invalid_object_paths.patch,
00git_type_registration.patch, 04_get_cwd.patch,
08_deprecate_racy_APIs.patch, 09_pam_environment.patch,
cve-2013-4288.patch: either backports from upstream, or already
applied upstream, and not discussed further here.
- 01_pam_polkit.patch: use Debian's common-* infrastructure,
plus pam_env to get the global environment and locale.
- 02_gettext.patch: Use gettext to translate .policy files at
runtime, allowing for Ubuntu-style language packs.
Debian-specific (mainly for Ubuntu's benefit, really).
- 05_revert-admin-identities-unix-group-wheel.patch: Debian does
not use the "wheel" group like Red Hat derivatives do;
treat uid 0 as the administrative identity instead.
- 06_systemd-service.patch: hook up the systemd service in
Not forwarded: obsoleted by an upstream change in 0.106,
commit 2995085.
* Re-order patch series to put upstream changes first, sorted by version
in which they went upstream, and put them in subdirectories by version
* Add patches from 0.113 to fix heap corruption CVE-2015-3255
(Closes: #766860) and local authenticated denial of service
CVE-2015-4625 (Closes: #796134)
* Add numerous other bug-fix patches from 0.113
- work around bugs in older versions of libpam-systemd when using
su or similar (Closes: #772125)
- treat background processes as part of the same uid's active GUI
session if they have one (Closes: #779988)
- fix some memory leaks (Closes: #775158, LP: #1417637)
* Add backported public API polkit_system_bus_name_get_user_sync() to
symbols file
* Fix FTBFS with dpkg-buildpackage -A by only installing files into
policykit-1 in per-arch builds
* Run tests with a session bus pretending to be the system bus,
so they can pass in a buildd environment
