Re: Let's enable AppArmor by default (why not?)

Hi,

Overall, this sounds like an interesting proposal and personally, I
agree that I think the Debian Linux ports would be better off with an
LSM enabled by default.

s/AppArmor/Any LSM/

Can we integrate these LSM policies into our testing frameworks (e.g.
autopkgtests), so we can start having automated tests of even basic
functionality.  Or will that happen "out of the box" if we enable it by
default (and, possibly, enable it on our test hosts)?
