Does anybody have update on this issue?

Sorry, no update, but AFAIK Jiří (jsrain) is working on a generic vendor

BTW PolicyKit supports so called annotaions see
-a ctions-annotations

That's exactly what we need here.

I'm working on (mostly documenting and providing a tempate) general D-Bus
service which can be then used by WebYaST. I expect to upload first version
(partly skeleton of the documentation) later today to the openSUSE wiki.

Have a look here:

at the tutorial. It describes how to create a generic D-Bus service with an
example how to make it run a command (which is passed through the interface,
which is not really secure). Hope you can use it.

In case of any questions, please, get back to me so that I improve the
documentation (or improve it yourself - it's a wiki :-) ). Be aware that this
is the first dump I put to wiki and I intend to continue updating it.

Of course, any feedback is welcome.
