My personal feeling is that the FAQ was great and indispensable when it
was created, back around FC3 when we were still trying to rally people
around all it could do.  Plus, I think Karsten cut off a huge chunk of
time (of which he was already short) to put this together with some
other Red Hat principals like Dan, because he saw it was necessary to
get the info some publicity.

I think those who are not sold on it at this point are sticking their
heads in the sand and you should probably graduate this to doing a real
guide. :-)  As we've already noted, the material that's in the FAQ is
still 75-90% very applicable because of its general nature.  In some
cases the tools are more robust, and guidance needs to be added or
amended (like setroubleshoot/sealert or system-config-selinux).

One thing I hear often from people is "How do I interpret this AVC
message?  How do I know what to do about it?"  I'm sure there are others
you can pick up on fedoraforum.org, and use them to feed the use cases,
and thus the supporting outline material I alluded to earlier.  It's
great that you're interested in doing this work -- it will probably be
read by thousands, SERIOUSLY! :-)
