(In reply to Sebastian Krahmer from comment #1)
Due to CVE-2017-8422 and CVE-2017-8849 it was decided to remove
smb4k from Factory. Operating with root privileges (such as
smb4k helper is doing) in user owned directories can never be secure.
Thats why it wont be approved.

Well, it has been suggested in bug#1033300 that we can add the available fixes
and request a new security review.

Fixes for both CVEs have been added, to kauth and smb4k respectively.
