Upower 0.99 is now required by gnome 3.12. As a result, we are trying to have the transition completed this cycle. The new release changes the SONAME, changed from the "changed" signal to "notify" as well as the function signature, and drops suspend support (which systemd now handles). This means nearly all packages that use upower will need changes.
Considering we haven't migrated to systemd yet, it would seem that would leave us without suspend support. Is there a plan to distro patch that back into upower? Can the suspend be used via one of the shims?
