selinux (1:0.11) precise; urgency=low
* Make update-selinux-policy work when only a base policy module is used.
(LP: #955426)

selinux (1:0.10) precise; urgency=low
* Fix unsafe lockfile creation. The scope of this is limited by when this
script is run. On Ubuntu 10.10 and higher, Yama blocks exploitation of
this issue, but we want to fix this on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (which doesn't
have Yama) and so this package is provided for upgrades. (LP: #876994)

selinux (1:0.9) lucid; urgency=low
* mounted-var{run,lock}.upstart, Makefile: add more restorecon
calls for tmpfs filesystems, thanks to Stephen Lawrence (LP: #568744).
2010-04-06 - Kees Cook <>
selinux (1:0.8) lucid; urgency=low
* debian/selinux.{preinst,postinst}, Makefile: move /etc/initramfs-tools
scripts to /usr/share/initramfs-tools.
* load_policy: source functions only in initramfs.
* mounted-dev.upstart, Makefile: move restorecon for /dev to upstart
job (LP: #556823).
2010-01-22 - Kees Cook <>
selinux (1:0.7) lucid; urgency=low
* Move restorecon for /tmp to an upstart job.

selinux (1:0.6) karmic; urgency=low
* Recommend policy packages instead of depends to prevent circular
2009-09-09 - Caleb Case <>
selinux (1:0.5) karmic; urgency=low
* GRUB 2 support, new LSM switching via 'security=' (LP: #428007).
* Added ext4 as a valid fs to relabeling script (LP: #371075).
2009-03-23 - Caleb Case <>
selinux (1:0.4) jaunty; urgency=low
* Adjusted depends to reflect package rename of selinux-policy-refpolicy
to selinux-policy-ubuntu (LP: #352771).

selinux (1:0.3) intrepid; urgency=low
* Bump epoch to avoid old Debian "selinux" Conflict in policycoreutils
to make selinux installable in Intrepid again.
2008-02-29 - Caleb Case <>
selinux (0.2) hardy; urgency=low
* load_policy:
- Use load_policy in /sbin instead of /usr/sbin (which may not be mounted
yet) (LP: #126415).
* update-selinux-policy:
- If selinux isn't enabled then do not reload the policy.
