transitional package for polkitd and pkexec
polkit is an application-level toolkit for defining and handling the policy that allows unprivileged processes to speak to privileged processes. It was previously named PolicyKit.
This transitional package depends on polkitd, the system service used by polkit, and pkexec, a setuid program analogous to sudo. They were historically packaged together, but have been separated so that users of polkitd are not required to install pkexec.
