Subject: We need *you* for a USE="selinux" dependency
Date: Sun, 4 Dec 2011 20:35:50 +0000
Hi guys 'n gals

obligatory tl;dr:
  Please check your package below this list and see if it (the package) has
  a proper DEPEND and RDEPEND on the listed sec-policy/selinux-<module> package(s)

Within the Gentoo Hardened project, we are working on getting the SELinux
support into shape. Recent evolutions are the stabilization of latest upstream
userspace utilities and policies as well as documentation improvements and even
some "human resource improvements" (read: fresh blood in our ranks).

Within SELinux, specific modules are used (called SELinux modules, because we
are not that creative in our naming) that contain the SELinux policy (what is
allowed) as well as labeling information for files (which we call file context
information). This labeling is very important in order for the policies to work
well - wrong labels will lead to applications running with wrong permissions
(which usually means "Application No Workie").

In Gentoo, unlike some other distributions, we try to keep the number of
loaded/installed modules to a minimum so that policy rebuilds as well as the
system overhead is limited. This results in a "base" policy (provided by
selinux-base-policy) and modules (provided by sec-policy/selinux-<modulename>). To make
sure that installations of a package pull in the right SELinux module, the
proper dependencies must be defined.

In the list below you will find "package dependency" information. This means
that the given package should have both DEPEND and RDEPEND on the dependency
(which is always of the form sec-policy/selinux-<modulename> since dependencies
on sec-policy/selinux-base-policy are always satisfied the moment a user has SELinux
enabled on his Gentoo system).

The dependency should be USE="selinux"-triggered (the selinux USE flag is masked
for non-SELinux profiles and mandatory on SELinux systems), like so:
	IUSE="selinux"
	DEPEND="selinux? ( sec-policy/selinux-<modulename> )"
	RDEPEND="selinux? ( sec-policy/selinux-<modulename> )"

The dependency must be on both levels, because the SELinux module must be
installed before the package is installed (and in theory, RDEPEND could
trigger an installation afterwards): during the installation phase, Portage
labels the files on the system (which would get wrong labels if the module
isn't installed yet[1]). Also, DEPEND isn't sufficient due to binary package
support requirements.

Since there are quite a few packages that would need updates, I thought about
first mailing gentoo-dev for feedback and perhaps a first chunk of work done. I
also wouldn't mind creating bugreports for each of them, but that would still be
best done after having mailed gentoo-dev ;-)

Wkr,
	Sven Vermeulen

[1] I am aware that Portage currently installs RDEPEND before the package
    itself, but that might change in the future and other package managers might
    exhibit different behavior.
