        The Fedora 12 release contained changes in the default PackageKit
        behavior that allow installation of packages by users in cases where:
        * the user is logged in on the local console, and
        * is installing packages signed with a previously trusted key, and
        * is using a previously configured and trusted repository
        After more discussion and thought, though, the package maintainers
        have posted to the fedora-devel-list mailing list agreeing to provide
        an update to Fedora 12's PackageKit.  The update will require local
        console users to enter the root password to install new software
        packages.  Details on the changes are found here:
