Re: Comments

Your arguments could also be used against how NSA "dumped" SELINUX over to the open source community. All Novell did was take a product they aquired and make it available through open source channels. There was an expectation by NSA that vendors would pick up (read: pay) for the much needed development work for SELINUX to fix the numerous bugs in the profile code and to expand the profile coding to support new versions of products and other applications. If Novell has a more stable product that can provide as good a solution or better, I think the open source community is benefited by their action.
If you honestly believe SELINUX is a mature platform that doesn't require good open source compatition to address the real weaknesses that exist in SELINUX, you are selling something other than open source (maybe Red Hat?).
