Moreover, 'cause PolicyKit allow you to provide task based policies, IMHO could be a good idea define:
 * one policy allowing to install updates;
 * one policy allowing to install security updates;
 * one policy allowing to upgrade distro.

I know, we have "automatically install security updates" option, but PolicyKit scope is allowing some users to do some tasks under certain conditions (or not) and I can't see any reason to limit this framework to a simple "Unlock" button :-)

This looks fixed in Karmic.

I've yet to see a policykit authentication window when I'm using update-manager in fact, running software-properties-gtk from the terminal exits with a warning that I'm not root.
C'mon it's 2009, and we have a beautiful authentication method, why root?

It was temporarily fixed in Karmic (with update-manager using aptdaemon instead of synaptic), but it was reverted for 9.10 for reliability reasons. Perhaps we'll have another go in Lucid+1.

We will turn this on again in lucid+1. Then u-m will use aptdaemon exclusively.
