Package: malcontent-gui
Version: 0.9.0-1
Severity: grave
Tags: patch
Justification: renders package unusable

Hi, it seems that there's a missing .policy file in the .install file
for `malcontent-gui`, specifically:

I opened a MR a few weeks ago for that:

Since gnome-control-center now depends on malcontent, the broken
functionality (no ability to _use_ malcontent-gui) is now exposed to all

You'll notice this issue when you open `malcontent-control`, which will
warn you that there's no data for users, and you should fix your
accountsservice. The message is somewhat confusing, because the reason
for the failure is that the .policy file is missing.
