Re: [E-devel] [Entrance] SELinux integration



*Suddenly appears out of nowhere*

NO.

No blatant copying of gdm code, even with permission. Study the algorithm
and reimplement it, but don't copy blocks of code from GDM. Everything
needs to be written from scratch. That's always been the design philosophy
from the beginning -- a lot of stuff in Entrance is taken from GDM
architecture/algorithm-wise, but I always took care to make sure I didn't
copy code explicitly to avoid licensing problems.

Great catch btw, Raster. Thanks.
