 When I blogged about the SWOT, I got a great email full of information
regarding SELinux. If anyone wants to pick it up, I can provide all the
info, some of them is compatible with our licencing, other is provided
by NSA and other institutions, which can be used to write an article or
whatever as long as we don't go into pelagic issues.

 I can ask the person who sended me all that info to send it to someone
who wants to pick up the topic.

 Though I'm not an engineer, despite I understand the concept
(theoretical and operational) of SELinux, and been defending it as a
great feature/technology present in Fedora, I dont feel capable of
taking it and really highlight it in the way it should.

 SELinux is actually something we should care a bit more promoting, as
it's a strategical advantage of Fedora compared to other distro's, as I
mentioned before, for example Novell deploys openSuSE with SELinux
disabled and AppArmor enabled, despite they are not the same, I would
assume they are competitors in the segment they designed for.

 +1 for SELinux.
