I previously posted this to the selinux list but the suggestion was made that 
I might get a better (quicker) response on this list. was first reported 6 
November and on 6 November Dan Walsh reported that the problem was fixed in 

WHERE IS selinux-policy-3.6.32-42.fc12.noarch ????

Today is 18 November.  This update (or a later/more-recent version) has not 
appeared in either updates or updates-testing for F12.

selinux-policy-3.6.32-46.fc12 is currently "queued for updates-testing but has 
yet to be added.

The problem in impacts the 
abrt package's ability to function properly.  The abrt package is a really 
good new feature in Fedora 12 and should help resolve problems more quickly 
since it provides a lot more information than many users include in the 
handcrafted reports (myself included).

Dan Walsh has pointed out that:

SO the lack of the selinux update may not be the problem with abrt's inability 
to get debuginfo packages so that it can generate a meaningful backtrace.

I do believe that it has been a bit long in getting an update out for selinux-
