Hi Thorsten,
thanks for the feedback. I guess the text is not clear enough :(
If you click on the 'here' link , you get the source file ( .te ) and 
you have to compile it as explained in the document ( a little bit below ).
If you click on the 'bluez-pin' or 'kbluepin' link then you get the .pp 
which can be loaded as stated with semodule -i file.pp .
I'll try to make it clearer ....
