Default Bug#507575: ITP: gksu-polkit -- run X-based applications as root

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Gustavo Noronha Silva <kov@debian.org>

* Package name : gksu-polkit
Version : 0.0.1
Upstream Author : Gustavo Noronha Silva <kov@debian.org>
* URL : http://live.gnome.org/gksu
* License : GPLv3/LGPLv3
Programming Lang: C/Vala
Description : command line utility to run programs as root

This is the new generation of gksu, a simple utility to run programs
as root, even in X-based environments. This version uses the new
libgksu-polkit library, which uses PolicyKit for authorization
purposes and a D-Bus service to actually perform the work.

This package aims to replace the current gksu and libgksu packages;
I'm going to work on a migration path.
