If it is trivial to review, it is probable trivial to code. Like all code
that is of interest, it needs to be properly reviewed. As we are talking
open source even you may review such code. If that is what it takes to have
your paranoia get some rest ... Have a look at SELinux, and in the mean time
I am interested to see some contributions from the CIA, or the NSA or their
Serbian equivalents to MediaWiki. When they are of interest, I would like
to see them localised at BetaWiki and yes, the translators of the CIA are
welcome to localise at BetaWiki as well because in the end we all benefit,
all in our own way.
Can we please get some sanity ? Cooperation will help us forward, we all
need to get along enough so that we can appreciate the good things that we
share. It is in the sharing that the "other" becomes a friend or at least

No, NSA is evil because it conducts massive illegal spying operations
such as ECHELON.
And how does that relate to selinux, or how does the CIA activities
relate to their contributions to MediaWiki ?
Given that we know that NSA conducts massive illegal spying operations,
is possibility that selinux is altered in a fashion that will make it
for NSA to spy on selinux' users. I don't know what are CIA's contributions
to MediaWiki, but unless it is trivial to review them, I would not accept
