unblock request for consolekit_0.2.10-2


please unblock consolekit_0.2.10-2.

Although this is a new upstream release, I really like to get this version into lenny. The major new feature is, that consolekit now creates pam_console compatible tag files. This means, dbus services can make use of the "at_console" policy, a long standing request! That means, local desktop users no longer have to be added to all the different groups (like plugdev/powerdev/netdev) in order to use NetworkManager or the powermanagement tools.

All major dbus services have been updated, to support both group based policies or at_console. Hal is the last package missing. I'll upload a fixed hal package 0.5.10-3 this weekend and file a separate unblock exception for that. A fixed version is already in the pkg-utopia svn [1]

consolekit_0.2.10-2 has already been in unstable for 15 days without any new bug reports and has been successfully built on all archs (hopefully the alpha porters also manage to upload the package eventually), libck-connector0 had no shlib changes and no rdeps.

Here's the changelog.

consolekit (0.2.10-2) unstable; urgency=high

  * debian/patches/03-cleanup_console_tags.patch
    - Properly initialize GError to avoid daemon crash if /var/run/console/
      does not exist. Also, demote message about it from warning to debug,
      since it is not an error condition at all. (Closes: #492686)
      Patch by Martin Pitt, thanks.
