xguest and rpm

(Anonymous)
i have been using xguest for a while now, with a secondary account and it's pretty cool, so thanks!.

But i wonder are there any plans to include selinux support to rpm in the fedora 9 road map and if not when. The reason i ask is that to me that seems to be the only major problem selinux has, (at least from a distribution perspective).

Thanks in advance.

Japan seems to be the only place (at least as far as I can tell) where "The Coca-Cola Company" has managed to produce soft-drinks that do not contain ridiculous amounts of sugar or artificial sweetener.

Here's a, uh, somewhat frank and direct, response to this approach

Dan, let's meet in the office tomorrow and talk!

If you do, please consider taking the discussion or at least any decisions you make to the fedora-devel list

Some people may disagree, but this actually has little to do with Fedora; both PolicyKit and SELinux are upstream projects consumed by several distros and both have their own upstream mailing lists... It's the old saying; do the development work upstream, not downstream.

(That said, I'm right now working on Feature pages for Fedora 9 that concerns PolicyKit. That's probably the right place for Fedora people to get involved. I'll mail f-d-l when they're up. Of course, anyone using Fedora is more than welcome to join upstream lists too. I'd encourage that.)

(There's also the problem that fedora-devel-list has a terrible S/N ratio these days; I'm having big problems just reading the list. I wish more people would send out the "your post is off-topic" messages.)

Some people will always disagree, (and they will probably be right to some degree) but fedora is the only major distro shipping selinux enabled by default it was the first one using policy-kit and the reason i said fedora-devel list is because i suspect the sort of integration you are talking about involves a lot more than just writing code.

That said, i don't know where is the best place to have that discussion selinux-devel perhaps?.

Whatever you guys decide it's fine but i just think it's better if done publicly.

If you do not get a response on a bug which you consider important, you might want to verify that you have assigned the bug to the right package and try providing more information on the problem.

I think having xguest style accounts is useful. I run commercial games that I don't want to have to trust on my machine and having something like xguest is useful for keeping them from phoning home and the like.

Just nitpicking...

... but your post would be much easier to read were it proof-read before posting. Right now it makes for a competent talk, but not for pleasant reading. Spell-checking and proof-reading make focusing on the content just so much easier, by eliminating the distraction of typos and grammar slips.

I suggest you proof read your writing before posting. For verification of what I took exception to check with Strunk and White.
