but very soon I discovered that documentation of PolicyKit is nearly non-existent. At least, it is not sufficient to do 
the migration. After reading the code I found that it is likely missing functionality of consolehelper.

I had a discussion with maintainer of PolicyKit and we both come conclusion that PolicyKit stopped in the middle of 
nowhere and for me and Mock is better to stay with consolehelper.

Does the situation have changed?
I don't know. I can't tell from the above what documentation or
functionality you're missing, and that info doesn't seem to be in the
ticket or bug you linked either (except a very vague mention of needing
"to handle ENV".) I don't know when your conversations and research
took place, so it's hard to say what's changed since.

polkit's maintainer has changed twice (I think) since the time this
feature was introduced, it's currently Jan Rybar. The current polkit
documentation is at
https://www.freedesktop.org/software/polkit/docs/latest/ .

The documentation seems to be slightly better, but after reading it I still have several questions:

* what is the preferred way to run python scripts? Is it using pkexec in shebang (seems to be discouraged in this thread) or using this technique?:


* what is the best way to mimic KEEP_ENV_VARS from `userhelper(8)`?
