Yes that was a mistake that it got out.  I am working on a new version 
of the policy src rpm.  It will create 4 rpms.  policy and 
policy-sources which will contain the targeted policy (relaxed) policy.  
policy-strict and policy-strict-sources which will contain the strict 
policy (The policy we currently ship).  This should be available in the 
first rawhide versions of FC3.   Policy sources will install in
/etc/security/selinux/targeted/src/policy.  Strict policy sources will 
install in /etc/security/selinux/strict/src/policy.
