Also a lot of frequently asked questions are answered really well on the maillists. Maybe we can pick the best from there and create a FAQ with a selection of those.

My blog posts, e-mails and etcetera can be used/modified/redistributed by anyone as far as i am concerned. There are no restrictions at all.

I have plenty things to talk about but i have alteast two problems: 1. my writing skills. 2. need specific topics, so that i can write "to the point" articles and not pages full of dull material where halfway i lost focus on the actual topic.

If there are people reading this that have experience with writing documentation etcetera and that want to help create documentation (and in the process learn a bit about SELinux), please let us know.
