Bug Description

On a fresh installation of Lubuntu 13.10, the package "policykit-desktop-privileges" is not installed. However, it should be a lubuntu-desktop dependency : http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~lubuntu-dev/ubuntu-seeds/lubuntu.saucy/view/head:/desktop

This is actually very tricky : policykit-desktop-privileges is set as a depends in lubuntu-desktop seed, which depends on lubuntu-core seed, which depends on desktop-common seed (in platform.*). But, policykit-desktop-privileges is set as a recommends in desktop-common, and since lubuntu seeds don't follow recommends, the entry in desktop-common is ignored. However, the entry in lubuntu-desktop is also ignored, because germinate (or something in the building process) catch the entry in lubuntu-desktop as a duplicate, not an overwrite. Currently, I don't know if I'm doing something wrong in the seed, or if it's really a bug in germinate.

In the meantime, I'll add it as a depends of lubuntu-default-settings, that should workaround the issue for the short-term.
