remove misguided action parameters
This feature was introduced with commit 02a4c510 http://gitweb.freedesktop.org/?p=PolicyKit.git;a=commit;h=02a4c5101ca4751963f76a0e016d3308389dc2a5 It makes things a lot harder for privilege granting if a feature like action parameters are present. Thinking about it, they're not really necessary; the parameters should just be encoded in the resource name; e.g. with the example given in the commit > This is useful for letting mechanisms convey information which may be > useful in making a decision whether an action is OK. For example, > NetworkManager could use this to provide the phone-number parameter > with a hypothetical "nm-dialup" action. Then a site or vendor can > provide insert > > mandatory polkit-run-program.so \ > program="/usr/lib/check-dialup-number.sh" privilege="nm-dialup" > > into /etc/PolicyKit/PolicyKit.conf and have said program check > > $POLKIT_ACTION_PARAM_PHONE_NUMBER > > in that program. is broken; the right thing here is for a hypothetical NetworkManager to pass the dial up connection details as the resource resource.type = "NetworkManager" resource.id = "/org/freedesktop/NM/DialUpConnection/number=555-HOT-CHICKS" in a well-defined format etc. etc.
