I respectfully disagree. No, the announcer does not have to explain
everything. But I don't see the huge effort in supplying a sentence or
two to describe what the software does. After the first announcement, it
would be canned anyway.
I've been working with Unix since 1988. I appreciate that Linux gives me
the power of Unix for the cost of PC hardware. But the volume and
variety of software is vastly greater for Linux than for any Unix
variant I ever worked with in the past. If you have developed some
software that you think would be useful to me or others, tell us about
it! If you expect me to discover it, I probably will not. And that's a
loss for both of us.
You are correct, it would have been far easier for me to google
"SELinux" than type out an email to bitch. The reason I went to the
trouble was to make a point I thought would be useful to the community.
I apolgize for phrasing it in a manner that ruffled feathers.
