In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed. Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping! N.B.

Justification: This fix restricts the default policy so only root can send dbus messages to thermald. [Test Case] How to reproduce: dbus-send --system --dest=org.freedesktop.thermald /org/freedesktop/thermald org.freedesktop.thermald.Terminate thermald can be send dbus then use: dmesg and see that init has respawned thermald (which means it received the dbus message and handled it) With the fix, the dbus-send message won't kill thermald and hence one won't see the re-spawn message in dmesg. [Regression Potential] Cannot think of any, low to none. Thermald is not a default install, it is a new packaging in Trusty and is currently op-in, so this change has minimal impact. Regression potential is that users won't be able to communicate to thermald via dbus-send, which is not the recommended way to shut down thermald anyhow. Tested today on an AMD64 trusty install.
