Actually the -1 karma is only justified if the avc denial does not exist
for the stable version of the package. Also it is helpful to also open a
bug report against selinux-policy in this case and provide the bug
number in the feedback comment.

Why do you do these steps? I would just run fedora-easy-karma, test the
packages in the order f-e-k suggests, skip packages one does not want to
test and as soon as a test is finished, select the karma and comment in
f-ek. A big disadvantage of step 3 is, that it will not filter out
updates that have already been tested by you. But in case you want the
file from step 3 for documentation purposes, you might want to use
"$(date -I)" to get a string like 2010-07-03 directly by the shell.
