The reason I moved rpcbind to stable was I saw the selinux-policy-3.3.1-115
had been built and pushed to testing... So I guess I just assumed selinux-policy
would be push to stable as soon as I pushed rpcbind.... as soon as I realized
that was not the case, I started to lobbing the selinux-policy maintainer to
get the package pushed...

Another caveat was the people needing the new rpcbind package don't need or 
use selinux so I was getting pressure make the release.. After a number of 
days of waiting, seeing the fixed selinux package was available plus it
truly was an selinux bug (all rpcbind was wanted to so as a setuid() to a
non-root user) I decide to make the release... Pissing some people off and
pleasing others... (the story of my life! ;-) )

Is there really a clean way of handling something like this? It was
not apparent to me... 

steved.
