This is a big motivation behind our "fish" names for boards --
they're pretty unappetizing to the pr/marketing folks so they never
get mixed up with final product names and we can concentrate on
making the hardware work.

selinux relabels are the new fsck

The lack of any changelog in a patch is usually a good sign that the
patch needs a changelog.

In the end neither side is right. There are useful things that you
can do with either, but as everyone and his demented gerbil has
pointed out, no one has the True Security Solution. Not even
SELinux, which violates some pretty fundamental security principles
(see: "small enough to be analyzed") in actual deployment. TOMOYO
violates "non-circumventable", just in case anyone thinks I'm
picking on someone. Heck, even Smack isn't perfect, although I will
leave it to others to autoclave that puppy.

If we are only talking about obligations under the GPL, sure, no
one violated copyright licenses. But what *did* happen is someone
basically said, "I want to experiment on a whole bunch of users,
but I don't want to spend the effort to do things in the right way.
I want to take short cuts; I don't want to worry about the fact
that it will be impossible to test kernels without pulling
Frankenstein combinations of patches between Fedora 13 and Fedora
12." It's much like people who drill oil in the Artic Ocean, but
use single-hulled tankers and then leave so much toxic spillage in
their wake, but then say, "hey, the regulations said what we did
was O.K. Go away; don't bother us."
