As a quick aside, this isn't strictly an SELinux mailing list.  I'd like
to certainly discuss SELinux here, but I'd also like to discuss
AppArmor, toolchain hardening, ASLR, fscaps, and any other distro-wide
security protections people would like to spend time working on.  :)

That said, I'd like to stay with topics that make sense for the ethos of
Ubuntu, keeping ease-of-use and freedom in mind.

During the "Server Security" discussion at UDS, we generated[1] a list of
possible ideas to work on, and I think it may be helpful to attempt to
prioritize them, and see who has time/interest to work on them.
