As we discussed at Linux Plumbers Conference during the 'Making SELinux Easier to Use" talk we have some document deficiencies in the SELinux project.

I volunteered to start an SELinux Documentation Project. The primary purpose of the project would be to get as much documentation as possible on the selinuxproject.org wiki, organized in a fashion that users can understand and consume easily.

As I admitted before, we, the developers, are not always the best people to judge what documentation users need and therefore am requesting users, hopefully from different backgrounds and environments, tell us what documentation they feel is lacking, what questions they've been asked or have asked themselves and couldn't find documentation for.

I think we need basic documentation that tells about SELinux (both beginner and advanced), howto's for specific things (using secmark, using netlabel, etc) and a set of short 'recipes' to accomplish simple tasks.

There are documents all over the place with various information, as well as blog entries and mailing list archives but the effort here is to consolidate all those resources onto selinuxproject.org.

Great. This is probably one of the best things to do for Selinux.
I'd also like to see volunteers in the community to help out with the documentation effort, I know quite a few people already write things like this on blogs, etc and it would be great to see that information moved/copied onto selinuxproject.org.


Please, if you are a user and have run in to lack of documentation respond to this thread, or privately if you aren't comfortable talking on list so that we can collect what the biggest deficiencies are and get to writing documentation as soon as possible.
