When installing an RPM -- oh god is this ever annoying -- I am forced to click and type through 4 dialogs! The first one asks to the effect of "Do you want to install?", the second prompts for root password, the third asks "Really? You really do want to install this?", and the fourth asks again for the root password.
Please combine the check which proceeds the 3rd dialog with the initial prompt so that the user can make an informed decision from the beginning, and obviously there would then only need for one password prompt, reducing this process from 4 highly annoying dialogs to just 2.
I have attached screen captures of the 1st and 3rd dialogs, to be sure it is clear what I am referring to. I was prevented from interacting with other programs so couldn't take screen captures of the dialog boxes, of course.

Crap, I mis-named the 3rd dialog screen capture as "2nd dialog"....
It looks like that package is not a signed package. Due to that, you're asked to confirm (to make sure it's not an accidental keypress) and then to install. Due to it not being signed, we fail the first transaction and requeue with higher permissions. This is to allow admins to set different policies depending on whether the file is signed, or unsigned.
If you want to know if the file is signed, I suggest you write a patch to PackageKit, and I'll gladly make use of the functionality in gnome-packagekit.
We moved the upstream bugtracker to GitHub a long time ago. If this issue still affects you please re-create the issue here: https://github.com/hughsie/PackageKit/issues
Sorry for the impersonal message, and fingers crossed your issue no longer happens. Thanks.
