Re: SELinux Suggestion

May I suggest to the Debian developers that, should they

in it at all? If the Debian Devel Team decides to incorporate
SELinux, then I recommend that the distro be split into
a SELinux and a non-SELinux version. Merely turning SELinux
off is (IMO, after seeing the mess over at Fedora the last
few years) not enough.


I concur. From what I've read, selinux seems complicated and Linux-contorting enough to be placed at Debian's periphery--if not outside of the perimeter altogether.
