The subject of the mail doesn't actually match the description in the
bug report.  Richard Hughes says:

"PackageKit allows you to install signed content from signed
repositories without a password by default. It only asks you to
authenticate if anything is unsigned or the signatures are wrong"

If you have a problem with this, do explain why. Not suggesting it is
not a problem but being more descriptive does help.
