Re: Please leave unconfined unconfined

At least on my f17 install it denies even things like gdb ./helloworld where I start gdb on my own program I just wrote.

Turning it off, so that I can debug my own programs means globally allowing it also for things I don't want this to have this capability?

I do think it is going to effect developers on Fedora/Red at platform. Not every hackers is administrator on all machines/severs they have to work on. If they are not the administrator it will mean that by default they cannot write/compile/debug stuff normally on such a machine. And I wouldn't be surprised if this becomes a "security race" between the developer vs the administrator wanting/not wanting to allow ptrace globally.
