How to disable password queries for Package Updates in Ubuntu 10.10

Today, I've toyed a bit with policykit in Ubuntu 10.10. It turns out that disabling the password prompt in update-manager and the software center is fairly easy. The following command should do the trick:

$ cat <<EOT | sudo tee /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/allow-apt.pkla
[allow-apt]
Identity=unix-group:admin
Action=org.debian.apt.*
ResultAny=no
ResultInactive=yes
ResultActive=yes
EOT

New web presence

I've now two new homes:
I finally found some time to move the contents of my old dokuwiki instance to a newer one. Unfortunately, the old theme is not working with the current dokuwiki version, and I didn't really feel reactivating the blog plugin.

I'm however pleased with the new setup. Instead of Apache2, I'm now using lighttpd with mod-fcgi, which uses much less of ressources on my server.
