Subject: policykit: Unable to mount USB stick from Desktop session due to default policykit rule

Package: policykit
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Plugging an USB stick makes polkit ask for root password.

Manually modifying rules in /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.UDisks2.policy works
-- ie USB stick is mounted seamlessly (no user/root passwd asked)
However, copying this above file to /etc/polkit-1/actions/ --to make modification survive updates-- does not work.

Also, instead of modifying org.freedesktop.UDisks2.policy, I found this working solution here : https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?pid=7848#p7848
