How do these new bits get backed up?  I'm still working on getting
SELinux backed up correctly, and now this... <sigh> an admin's job is
never done.

Since they are stored as xattrs, tar and star should do it if you tell them to get the extended attributes. Also, aide supports looking for changes in xattrs if you need that, too.


What about cp -a and rsync -a? I expect either of these to give me a working system.

Read the man page. You need to pass -X or -xattrs to preserve extended attributes.
