Is there any quickstart document I should read to get myself up to speed?

Maybe that is one of the things that prevents users and developers from
running or enabling SElinux, there is currently not much information to
describe what a user needs to do in Debian in order to benefit from it.
What's more, if you Google it out you might end up with bits that are
not updated and do not apply anymore.
Manoj gave an excellent talk on SElinux at Debconf6, and the wiki points
to three different pages 
The Debian Security Manual does not currently have a section on SELinux,
it is only mentioned, in passing at the "Adding kernel patches" section 
I would gladly add a separate section on SElinux to the Manual if
somebody from the team would write one. It doesn't have to be
excessively detailed, it could maybe be written based on Manoj's  or
Russel's  pages. But somebody has to do it (maybe even talk to Manoj
to get him to attach a proper license to this brief HOWTO so that it can
be reused in the Manual)
I'm not knowledgeable enough on SELinux to do it myself, and I cannot
spare time to tinker with it, but if someone where to do it I think that
might spur more users and developers...
