could you be more specific in porting guide with some more real world examples 
etc. Patches are OK for quick overview what should be done but it's not a good 
source if you don't know code for those apps.

For us (KDE SIG) it's really big problem - PK1 already missed 4.3 release (as 
it brings old PK support) so it's possible to have it upstream for 4.4 (next 
year). I'd try to contact upstream to ask them about current status but it 
looks like nobody is currently working on port but I hope we can help with it 
(as it comes from Fedora)...

Could you add policykit-qt/kde to blockers on PK1 Feature page?

How long old PK will be shipped in Fedora?
