Thanks for the feedback. I'll change the text on my site and also add
more explanation about this project.
Tomoyo is not as secure as SELinux (it's written in their docs), but
way more easier to set up and use in my opinion. Because it deals with
file paths, the rules are easy to read. But i still think it's too time
consuming and hard to manage and update several thousands of rules all
the time. That's why i created my project.
