When we get to the end point (FC2 gold) this system is going to be very stable 
and secure.  However, the transition with its large number of daily updates 
sure make things "interesting" ... I have managed to screw things up on one 
system so that I am on my third install.  

Unfortunately, discovering all of the different nuances necessary in a 
security policy supporting real people, real systems, and real situations is 
a lot more difficult than having a policy in a controlled experiment.  Well, 
we are all here trying to pound this into something that works and I believe 
it will work pretty well when FC2 gold comes out but a wole lot better in FC2 
gold.  This is going to take time.

One big gripe I do have is up2date: 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=119538

When rpm fails to (properly) install a package because of some selinux policy 
thing, this is not handled well by up2date.  In fact, up2date reports that 
the package was installed properly when it was not installed.  My latest 
experience with that is when I tried updating gdm ... old package removed but 
new package not installed.  I only found this because I am manually querying 
rpm after every update.  When I tried to manually install the package, I saw 
the errors.  I then did "setenforce 0", manually installed the old package, 
manually installed the new package, and "setenforce 1".  Update now complete.

This rpm/up2date problem needs to be addressed.  Unfortuantely, it is not 
clear that my bugzilla report is being addressed.
