    Interesting change in the new Fedora: if a user tries to run something that
    isn’t installed, and it’s available from a signed repository, the PackageKit
    system will automatically offer to let them install it without prompting for
    a password.

    Some find it controversial, but it is after all just a default setting, and
    apparently only on the desktop “spin†of Fedora, not the server variant.
