yes we probably need more/better docs but this is a important issue that 
can't be simply ignored... how can a package that does not work with 
something that is enabled by default in fedora get into fedora?

"I've no problems with writing something about SELinux in the 
guidelines, although you should realise, that handling selinux requires 
a certain amount of knowledge I'm pretty sure not everyone has, so 
making this a hard requirement will exclude about 99% of our current 
no it wouldn't because 95% of the packages do not require any changes... 
and the other 5% should read the docs (has to be improved) or aks people 
that has better knowlege (thats why its a community distro not everybody 
should know about everything)

p.s: I am ignoring the "packagemonkey issue" because I think its 
pointless and does not help making fedora better (its the opposite) so 
please stop it...thx
