This Tuesday was the "Confined Users" Test Day / Fit&Finish  (TD/F&F).
Though we expected higher attendance, the results are really valuable.
The most valuable outcome of a test day could be a fact that we should
bring more attention/people to using/testing SELinux policy and related
Thanks to all who participated and helped with the organization,
especially to Dan Walsh who promptly started to resolve reported bugs
and already fixed some important issues.
Following bugs were reported during the TD/F&F by the participants:
