[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: galago-daemon
Version: 0.5.1-1
Severity: normal

(Filed as a result of http://wiki.debian.org/DBusPermissions)

galago-daemon's source code shows no signs of using the system bus, only
the session bus. However, it installs a security policy for the system
bus anyway.

The D-Bus policy language is far too complicated and subtle, so the
fewer policy files we have to audit, the better. Please check whether
/etc/dbus-1/system.d/galago-daemon.conf serves some purpose, and if it
does not, stop installing it.

Regards,
    Simon
