Talking Advice on SElinux Policy Editors?

I am looking for some recommendations on tools to edit selinux policies. In particular:
  • GUI Interfaces
  • yum packages neede to create, edit, delete policies
  • reference material on the policy "language"
  • tools for debugging policies
  • tools for deciphering FC6's security log messages

For "tools for deciphering FC6's security log messages":

yum -y install setroubleshoot

For reference material, see the Wiki.

Packages to manipulate policy:

yum install policycoreutils selinux-policy-devel checkpolicy

A policy editor is available here, but you can use any text editor if you want.
