Description Grégoire 2016-02-08 05:47:24 EST
Description of problem:
When trying os-builder, I was surprised to see that it disabled selinux without asking me.  It prints the following messages:

> SELinux was found enabled on your system, in enforcing mode.
> SELinux is incompatible with olpc-os-builder.
> It has been temporarily set to permissive mode to avoid this incompatibility.
> It will be re-enabled upon reboot, or alternatively you can re-enable 
> it yourself, after olpc-os-builder has completed.

I think it should at the very least ask the user to confirm that this is ok and give the command to re-enable selinux (I used setenforce Enforcing to set it back in enforcing mode).
Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-24 10:27:18 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '23'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
