Sorry for late reply.  I registered myself on alioth as zito-guest.  I'm
not certain on how to use alioth.  My idea was to public a repository
with packages for Debian Etch (more recent versions of packages than
those in Etch).  My company stuck on some security decision to pass http
access on server with such repository (reprepro managed debian archive).
Maybe I can use git repository on alioth for package sources.

I have following done:

checkpolicy		2.0.4-0.icz.1 
libselinux		2.0.35-0.icz.2 
libsemanage		2.0.9-0.icz.1 
libsepol		2.0.11-0.icz.1 
policycoreutils		2.0.27-0.icz.1 
refpolicy		0.0.20070928-0.icz.3 
setools			3.3.2-0.icz.2 
ustr			1.0.2-1.icz.1 

All packages are Manoj Srivastavas packages from Sid upgraded with
more recent upstream
that is 20070928 release.

Ustr is exception, this package I created from scratch using CDBS and
sponsor is needed ;)
Hmm, priority needs to be changed from optional to standard, because
libsemanage depends on it.  I will update this.

I'm playing with HEAD of refpolicy from
My vision is to package refpolicy later, so basic system will be
functional with it. There are many issues currently.
Propagating changes to upstream seems to me efficient now.
