Hi Vincenzo, it seems you have some head start with selinux. However in 
case you're interested to look something else, I'd recommend checking 
out Ensemble
A lot of work is going into refining Ensemble, and I find it extremely 
interesting. I just finished a blog post, which you may find interesting
There's a lot of room for writing tons of Ensemble variables, join in 
#ubuntu-ensemble and everyone in there will be happy to get you kickstarted
