the SUSE security team recently decided to turn the
"polkit-untracked-privilege" into an error. Currently this is only an
informational message. If you get messages like these in your package:
gvfs-backends.x86_64: I: polkit-untracked-privilege org.gtk.vfs.file-operations
then they will become an error with 10.000 extra badness in the future,
as is the case with other polkit related errors. This affects all
packages in openSUSE:Factory.
there seems to be a bit of confusion for some users regarding this
change (see bnc#1089082).
My statement above is not completely correct: The change not only
affects all packages in openSUSE:Factory but all packages that build
against the Factory repository which usually includes also home and
This is no major change, however, since this has always been the case
for other errors like 'polkit-unauthorized-privilege'.
You can suppress the rpmlint errors in home and devel projects by using
an rpmlintrc file as outlined here:
You can do this while developing a package or for packages that aren't
supposed to be submitted to openSUSE:Factory. Please remove such
suppressions before submitting to openSUSE:Factory.
