PackageKit is a D-Bus abstraction layer that allows the session user
to manage packages in a secure way using a cross-distro,
cross-architecture API.

Update Information:

- Never show the DBUS remote error to the user
- Fix the pango_language_matches() parameter list regression
- Don't crash when writing the offline-updates results file
- Only save interesting packages to offline-update-completed

- New upstream release
- Suggest a Linux binary if the Solaris name is used
- Use pkttyagent to request user passwords if required
- Ask PackageKit to quit when yum is started
packagekit-glib no longer explicitly depends on PackageKit
