I pushed: http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/polkit.git/commit/?id=1224d7b427a507339087e2f72c481b560c85149b
Built as: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=8072916
Which makes polkit optional if NM (or anything else that links to libpolkit) is used. This is a follow up to http://cgit.freedesktop.org/NetworkManager/NetworkManager/commit/?id=53e244bef637c3e4004961651d4ed23eda7393b5
I suspect for most people this is a "duh, finally" thing. Upgrades should work fine (polkit gains a new dep on polkit-libs). But do be aware that if you *do* want it and you are constructing a system from scratch, you'll now have to explicitly install "polkit". I can't think offhand of any realistic case that would break, but here's a heads up anyways.
