Description Ben Levenson 2007-03-06 03:35:19 UTC
Description of problem:
There are some formatting issues with the description (just compare it to the
description for libselinux):

Name        : setools                      Relocations: /usr 
Description :
Security-enhanced Linux is a patch of the Linux kernel and a number of
utilities with enhanced security functionality designed to add
mandatory access
controls to Linux.  The Security-enhanced Linux kernel contains new
architectural components originally developed to improve the security
 of the Flask
operating system. These architectural components provide general
 support for the
enforcement of many kinds of mandatory access control policies, including
based on the concepts of Type Enforcement, Role-based Access Control, and
Multi-level Security.

The tools and libraries in this release include: 
1. libapol: The main policy.conf analysis library, which is the core
library for all our tools.

The tools and libraries in this release include: sechecker, sediff, seinfo,
sesearch, libapol, libseaudit, and libsefs
