full build log

For my package found in OBS in home:embar-:Lietukas/calamares I would like a
whitelisting for the following rpmlint error:

[ 408s] calamares.x86_64: I: polkit-cant-acquire-privilege (no:no:auth_admin)
[ 408s] Usability can be improved by allowing users to acquire privileges via
[ 408s] authentication. Use e.g. 'auth_admin' instead of 'no' and make sure to
[ 408s] 'allow_any'. This is an issue only if the privilege is not listed in
[ 408s] /etc/polkit-default-privs.*
[ 408s]


[ 408s] calamares.x86_64: E: polkit-untracked-privilege (Badness: 10000) (no:no:auth_admin)
[ 408s] The privilege is not listed in /etc/polkit-default-privs.* which makes
[ 408s] harder for admins to find. Furthermore polkit authorization checks can
[ 408s] introduce security issues. If the package is intended for inclusion in
[ 408s] SUSE product please open a bug report to request review of the package
by the
[ 408s] security team. Please refer to
[ 408s] for
[ 408s] more information.

I would like to submit it later into Education/calamares and main openSUSE
Factory/Tumbleweed repository. Please help with this package.
