Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2017-12-01 20:15:05 UTC
The only usage of USE=systemd in the ebuild is here:

        policykit? (
                !systemd? ( sys-auth/consolekit )

This would be much better done by USE=consolekit instead. Consider elogind users who otherwise need to add a counter-intuitive package.use entry (systemd and elogind collide on global level).

Do we even need that dependency there? FWICS, polkit has appropriate PDEP already.

    xfce-extra/xfce4-power-manager: Remove redundant dep on consolekit
    Remove USE=systemd and the redundant direct dependency
    on sys-auth/consolekit that was controlled through it. The appropriate
    dependency along with a little more up-to-date logic is already present
    as PDEPEND in sys-auth/polkit itself.
