Purpose

SELinux Fedora Policy is a fork of the SELinux reference policy. The fedora-selinux/selinux-policy repo makes Fedora packaging simpler and more transparent for packagers, upstream developers, and users. It is used for applying downstream Fedora fixes, for communication about proposed/committed changes, and for communication with upstream and the community. It reflects the upstream repository structure to make submitting patches to upstream easy.

Structure

GitHub

On GitHub, we have one repository containing the policy sources.

$ cd selinux-policy
$ git remote -v
origin  git@github.com:fedora-selinux/selinux-policy.git (fetch)

$ git branch -r
origin/HEAD -> origin/master
origin/f27
origin/f28
origin/master
origin/rawhide

Note: As opposed to dist-git, the Rawhide content resides in the rawhide branch rather than master.

dist-git

Package sources in dist-git are composed from the selinux-policy repository snapshot tarball, container-selinux policy files snapshot, the macro-expander script snapshot, and from other config files.
