It would be nice if we could get some of these things tested out in-house 
before we publish them and break the machines of lots of rawhide users.

I've got a machine on the net on which I can give administrative access to any 
Red Hat employee who needs to test their package with SE Linux (*).  Also I'm 
usually fairly quick on responding to email, so if you email me an RPM (to my 
redhat.com address preferably) and ask me to check it to make sure it doesn't 
break SE Linux you can expect a fast response.


(*)  While any Red Hat employee is capable of installing their own machine, I 
think that many people don't want to go to the effort of tracking rawhide on 
a SE Linux machine with all the associated effort of adjusting policy to 
match changes to daemons, reverting changes which break things, etc.  If you 
use my machine you can test your own package without worrying about the rest 
of the system.
