Description of problem:
The secid-reconciliation patches posted by Venkat @ TCS does not include
NetLabel support.  If the secid-reconciliation patches are pulled into RHEL5
then NetLabel support should be included.  A patch which adds this support can

Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.  Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products.  This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
Comment 3 Jay Turner 2006-10-10 07:21:49 EDT
QE ack for RHEL5B2.  Since this is a feature enhancement, needs to be
incorporated into B2 otherwise will need to be targeted for 5.1.
Comment 4 Jay Turner 2006-10-10 11:05:38 EDT
Apparently this is going to come back as an exception after B2.
Comment 8 Paul Moore 2006-10-31 12:28:22 EST
The secid reconciliation work has been discarded as it was deemed to be to
complex and difficult to understand.  As a result of this decision there is
really no need for the patches above.

This bug can/should be closed.

I guess i'll agree with that *smile*
