And this enormous security hole of a policy change was done with next to

F11 had retained authorisations, which arguably were more of a
security weakness. If rawhide had been signed during the F12 cycle
everybody would have seen this change much earlier.

If you're deploying F12, then I really think you should know the
basics about PolicyKit.

to be fair, when I asked you how to edit a .pkla file you couldn't tell me.

So, if our engineers don't know the basics, how should our users?
