Hello,
Hi Dominick, 

Here is a list with links to SELinux resources.
http://selinuxproject.org/page/User_Resources

You have already found the right mailing lists (except Tresys refpolicy list). I Recommend that you also bookmark and study the list Archives:

https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-selinux-list/
http://oss.tresys.com/pipermail/refpolicy/
http://marc.info/?l=selinux&r=1&w=2

Oh, sure I always try to go through archives. 


Also have a look at this presentation:
http://people.redhat.com/dwalsh/SELinux/Presentations/ManageRHEL5.pdf

This book:
http://www.selinuxbyexample.com/

These:
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/selinux-user-guide/f11/en-US/
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/selinux-managing-confined-services-guide/en-US/F11/html/

And this:
http://www.nsa.gov/research/selinux/

Thanks a lot for all links you have put up together for me. I believe I already have some of them, if not all of them. I was wondering if there is some academic research into SELinux (other than Flux / Flask) as other resources / references might be deemed as unsubstantiated.

Thanks, 

Zbynek
