Hi Luk,

I forgot to mention, that upstream recommends to keep policykit and
policykit-gnome versions in sync. I briefly tested policykit 0.9 together with
policykit-gnome 0.8, and so far it seems to work fine.

I would nonetheless support upstreams recommendation and so also ask for an
unblock of policykit-gnome 0.9-1 (to avoid any subtle failures which I couldn't
find with my brief testing).

The debian changelog is:

policykit-gnome (0.9-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release.
  * debian/control
    - Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.0. No further changes.
  * debian/patches/03-fix_i18n.patch
    - Removed, merged upstream.
