I noticed that 011 will change its property naming scheme from
dash-dash to AllCamelCase, which afaics is an D-Bus API break.
Eg. libdevkit-power-gobject 010 and DeviceKit-power 011 will not work
together (in case someone does a partial package upgrade).
(I'm not sure how you do the package split in Fedora, but for
Debian/Ubuntu where we have separate packages for DK-power and
libdevkit-power-gobject this will be a PITA)
Now that DK-disks and DK-power are more and more widely used, such API
changes become and issue.
How will that be handled in the future? When can we expect a stable (D-Bus) API?
Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
