On upgrading libvirt to 1.2.17-1 I get the following:

warning: directory permissions differ on /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/
filesystem: 700 package: 755

So I changed the permission accordingly but I'm curious because that directory is also owned by polkit. So I reinstall polkit to check and get:

directory permissions differ on /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/
filesystem: 755 package: 700

The two packages have conflicting permissions for the same directory. One or the other needs to change I think so it will be consistent.
This task depends upon

It's strictly an issue in the libvirt package. The 700 permissions from polkit is from upstream and it's sensible because it's a sensitive directory.
