        http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/F-11/upstart/ does not seem
 to have any SELinux patches, and
        http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/EL-5/ does not have any
 upstart packages (I do not see a repository for RHEL-6).

        I am going to send in the patch to the SELinux devel list for
 comment, and there are a lot of Red Hat folks over there.

When does summertime come to Minnesota, you ask?  Well, last year, I
think it was a Tuesday.
