+udiskie is a simple daemon that uses udisks_ to automatically mount removable
+storage devices.
+.. _udisks: http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/udisks
+udiskie requires permission for the ``org.freedesktop.udisks.filesystem-mount``
+action.  This is usually granted in sessions launched with ConsoleKit_ support.
+If run outside a desktop manager with ConsoleKit_ support, the permission can be
+granted using PolicyKit_ by creating a file called ``10-udiskie.pkla`` in
+``/etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d`` with these contents:
+.. _ConsoleKit: http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/ConsoleKit
+.. _PolicyKit: http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/PolicyKit
+    [udiskie]
+    Identity=unix-group:storage
+    Action=org.freedesktop.udisks.filesystem-mount
+    ResultAny=yes
+This configuration allows all members of the storage group to run udiskie.
