It would help if you read the replies on lists that you post to, instead of 
expecting people to send them direct to you.  You asked the same question on 
the Fedora Test list.  For the sake of the archives I'll quote the reply - but 
please think about what you are doing.  FOSS is a cooperative endeavour, and 
you seem to think you don't need to put any effort into cooperation.

1.  polkit-qt is currently pending review:
2.  k3b can be built with 
to avoid the polkit-qt dependency.  See also:
