I hope Vincent can clarify this.

I want to add the following polkit rules in 12.2 kdebase3 package which are
needed for its new Udisks2 backend

Can I add this rules file to my package?


You should have figured out that "Yes" means that all users are allowed
to do all udisks2 actions, which include all kind of fstab modifcations.

And that this basically means full root access for all users.

So it is not allowed.

Or this is already implemented in 12.2?


Without these rules the backend does not work properly.

The standard file should work, if you have working console management
(I think it should be there if you use gdm or kdm4 or xdm).

Do you have a policy kit agent for kde3, or can you use either the
kde4 or gnome one? (cross check what xfce does)

Then your policy change is not required.

Does use of policy kit agent mean that upon mounting an USB drive or a CD
the user should be asked a root password?

This is not what is desired. The intent is to make them auto-mount.
