Little things that matter in language design
if new capabilities are being added to support LSMs, it would be really good if the support wasn't limited to RPM based systems.
LSS: Security modules and RPM

well, the talk was only about changes to RPM (not the kernel or LSMs), so .deb systems might be able to do similar things for dpkg or whatever, but the code is presumably different enough that making a single library or something for both package managers is probably not in the cards ...
but maybe i misunderstand ... certainly other package managers weren't mentioned in the talk ...

There are already too many people who thing Linux == RedHat (especially in enterprise circles), and just talking about this issue in terms of RPM seems to be falling into the same trap.
