Hi !
I had problem to restore my backup made under 1.2.1 to the new 1.2.2pre 
serie that's why I am not sure. Besides this I didn't have time to analyze 
the problem yet but I'll give a try to 1.2.2preX.
TrustedDebian is great. I started getting familiar with it and it would be 
a pleasure for me to test 'side' packages like rklogd.

To get off the topic for a moment:
May I suggest to modify freeswan to place its config files under 
/etc/ipsec.d/ ? In that case someone, working with it, does not have to 
take care of its rights it's enough to set some RC_Type_FD to 
/etc/ipsec.d. Or perhaps they should be left where they are just no to 
confuse people got used to it. What is your opinion? Instead of it I 
should place symlinks to them in /etc/ and move them to /etc/ipsec.d ?

By the way, trusted debian is a great job indeed. Thanks for it.

It looks like 1.2.2-pre4 is quite stable so far. You could give it a try 
and go
back to v1.2.1 if you encounter problems (which is rather unlikely). 
if you prefer 1.2.1, I may have a 1.2.1 package tree somewhere.

There is a lot of work to do on Trusted Debian and I thought it was more
important get at least some RSBAC stuff out first. And then make 
So I haven't looked at the rklogd stuff yet. But it should be no problem 
create a separate package for it and add kernel support for RSBAC's own 
facility. I would be happy if you would like to test such packages and 

There is more to be done on the RSBAC packages though, the man pages 
have their own rsbac-doc package (probably including some other useful
documentation). The librsbac.a or whatsitsname and perhaps kernel header 
should go in an rsbac-dev package. I hope to accomplish that the comming
weekend or eary next week.

Well, that is what the Trusted Debian project is for, so people do not 
have to
reinvent the wheel over and over again.
