And the people that do not get enough help. I once asked how to get something 
to work because of denied execmod. I got a response that it needs 
text_rel_shlib_t or something similiar, but there was no help how to do this 
correctly in a spec. 
helped a little but was/is not up to date and also the work needed for 
something this simple is way to much imho. One needs to create at least 2 not 
empty files and have a bunch of scriptlets and some other selinux code. This 
whole complexity only leads to more packaging errors. What should be there is 
help, procedures and helpful tools for a maintainer to be able to easily 
package software.
