I think the stats are developing.  Currently we are not providing enough
information to make a real good interpretation of the data.  50 % of all
machines that smolt has ever collected data for report they have selinux
_enabled.  This does not mean the other 50% reported that they have it
disabled, just that they have not reported that it is enabled.  :^(  I
sound like a politician.

Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics.

And yes Valent has been working with us to repair problems in SELinux.
