It might be worth having this content as something we push out after
release.  I don't want to stop anyone from going as fast as they want,
of course!  But having some content to fall back on in the few weeks
after release would be great too.

I'd also encourage you to present any findings you have to the Docs
team since they maintain an SELinux Guide.  If you find people are
having trouble with a specific topic, maybe more coverage in that
guide would be called for.  Alternatively, if we find there *is* good
coverage in the SELinux Guide, maybe we can use the article around
SELinux as a way of *advertising* that Guide better!
