1 Hey guys,
3 Please take a read through this and feed back any comments. This is
4 starting to become more important as we are growing with relation to
5 Gentoo's attention to QA and in particular our security practices.
7 I'd like to think that we run all over the "secure" distros with a lot
8 ot his stuff, and we all do it anyways - generally speaking. But at
9 least by having an official doc (that will be published) we have
10 something to fall back on when the time comes to kick ass.
12 At the moment there is nothing discussing kernel-modules. Thats going to
13 be something different I suspect.
15 As mentioned, this is very much draft, plus - it's late and I've likely
16 made a lot of mistakes during my distractions. Comments, ideas, changes,
17 deletions, etc etc all on list please.
19 Cheers,
20 John
