[Debian-olpc-devel] Bug#510657: sugar: /etc/dbus-1/system.d file needs alterations for fd.o #18961

Package: sugar
Version: 0.82.8-3
Severity: normal
User: pkg-utopia-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: fdo-18961

sugar's D-Bus system.d config should be updated to fix
non-deterministic allow/deny for messages with no interface; the D-Bus
upstream recommendation seems to be that every allow or deny rule with
send_interface="..." should have a suitable send_destination attribute too.

In this case, this would make them redundant with the lines matching
send_destination="org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerInfo", so they can
just be removed (see the patch for dnsmasq on the bug linked below).

http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18961 is the D-Bus bug tracking
this; there have also been discussions on the D-Bus mailing list.
