Severity: important

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute `/usr/lib/policykit-1-gnome/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1` under sway
2. Start a authentication: `pkexec /bin/sh`

Actual results:
Authentication window opens and crashes immediately.

See also: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/70670.

And I created a Merge Request: https://salsa.debian.org/utopia-team/polkit-gnome/-/merge_requests/1.


I wanted to ask you to forward this patch to upstream, but it seems PolicyKit-gnome has been archived:


Having a security sensitive application with a dead upstream is probably not a good idea, so I wonder whether dropping policykit-1-gnome from the archive would be a (better) alternative.

Currently, the only hard reverse dependency according to dak is:

Checking reverse dependencies...
# Broken Depends:
cinnamon: cinnamon
cinnamon-control-center: cinnamon-control-center

Dependency problem found.

I thought cinnamon had a builtin PK agent. Either this is not true or the dependency is unnecessary.

Simon, should we hand over policykit-1-gnome to the cinnamon maintainers?

Bringing the cinnamon maintainers into the loop here.
