'Twas brillig, and Nix at 23/04/10 00:43 did gyre and gimble:

Can you say which pacakge provides that file? It doesn't seem to be part
of the main ConsoleKit spec (i.e. with a patch).

I'd like to look at this file but without knowing what package it's in,
it's hard to comment.

Maybe it's not ready for upstream yet? Fedora tends to be a testing
ground for a lot of new things, so this is not overly uncommon.

Would you prefer some completely unknown and mysterious system to one
you actually can poke about with and figure out? Honestly, if this
bothers you, do something about it - speak to the people involved and
help write the docs. Moaning solve precisely nothing.
