Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org at packages.debian.org
Usertags: unblock

Please consider unblocking planned upload of package mate-desktop.

+  * debian/patches:
+    + Add 0001_fix-pkexec-calls-in-desktop-launcher.patch. In
+      mate-desktop-item.c: Add a child watch if "do not reap child" flag is set.
+      This avoids double forking with desktop files that have "exec pkexec ..."
+      inside. (Closes: #781246).

-> Applications launched via pkexec via a .desktop file in MATE double
fork, which let's the pkexec call fail in some situations.
