The default geoclue.conf lists gnome-settings-daemon, epiphany, and firefox but not gnome-maps. This renders gnome-maps's "my location" button unusable.

Attached is a fixed geoclue.conf

Additional info:
* package version(s) 2.1.4-1
* gnome-maps error is as follows: Gjs-Message: JS LOG: Failed to connect to GeoClue2 service: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied: Geolocation disabled for UID 1000

Steps to reproduce:
Click the "my location" button in gnome-maps.
This task depends upon
