policykit-1 (0.105-15~deb8u2) stable; urgency=medium
* Disable 0.113/sessionmonitor-systemd-prepare-for-D-Bus-user-bus-mo.patch
and 0.113/sessionmonitor-systemd-Use-sd_uid_get_state-to-check.patch.
Those two patches add support for `systemd --user` sessions and the D-Bus
user model. For that they rely on sd_uid_get_state() which seems to be
broken in Jessie when logind is running under sysvinit. Since those
features are not yet needed in Jessie, do not apply those patches.

This ensures that everything from the same source package is upgraded in
lockstep. (Closes: #817998)

policykit-1 (0.105-14.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Fix FTBFS on non-linux/non-systemd. (Closes: #798769)

policykit-1 (0.105-14) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/policykit-1.preinst: Use systemctl unmask instead of direct symlink
removal for consistency.
* Fix handling of multi-line helper output. Thanks Dariusz Gadomski! Patch
backported from upstream master. (LP: #1510824)
2015-10-21 - Martin Pitt <mpitt@debian.org>
policykit-1 (0.105-13) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/policykit-1.{pre,pos}inst: Temporarily mask polkitd.service while
policykit-1 is unpackaged but not yet configured. During that time we
don't yet have our D-Bus policy in /etc so that polkitd cannot work yet.
This can be dropped once the D-Bus policy moves to /usr.
