Perhaps my wording was off. I didn't mean to imply that developers don't care about writing
secure software or that security isn't in mind when developing but rather that if it comes
down to implementing feature X or writing SELinux policy chances are feature X is going to be
implemented first. Unless you have someone who's job it is to keep track of what is changing
in your project and update your SELinux policy accordingly, your policy will be an
afterthought. I'd be glad to be proved wrong on this but sadly based on what I've seen this
seems to be the case.
