i noticed a bug in the last udev-selinux patch that went past
[these?] lists last week.
i sent a request for acknowldgement, and unfortunately i am very
sorry to say that i have not received an acknowledgement, and
so unfortunately i will continue to request an acknowledgement
from the people doing the redhat-based development until i
if it wasn't important - namely that the bug in the patch will result
in incorrect policy file development for udev.te - i wouldn't bother.
the bug is that the patch merged three near-identical sections of
code that use matchpathcon(..., mode) into a function,
where mode was S_IFDIR, SF_IFLNK and S_IFsomething ...
... and the person who reworked the patch forgot to pass the mode
argument down to matchpathcon.
result: on all three instances of calling matchpathcon, the
file_contexts for DIRECTORIES will be looked up.
it was either dan or colin, and i can't remember who.
anyone who is doing udev selinux development who is NOT using
my original patch, non-optimised as it is, please be advised.
Truth, honesty and respect are rare commodities that all spring from
the same well: Love. If you love yourself and everyone and everything
around you, funnily and coincidentally enough, life gets a lot better.
