I've setup the wiki page for the project [
http://wiki.apparmor.net/index.php/Profile_Management_Tools], it'd be nice
if some-one could just scroll through the page. I'll update the blog link
once, I have an initial post ready for the project.
@Christian please add your profile link with your name and maybe your IRC
@John , @Christian also you can fill out the schedule for weekly meetings.
The updated config.py using the ConfigParser module will also be updated in
a few hours.
The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the
intelligent are full of doubt.
