If this content is off topic I'm in the wrong forum.  As an infant gnu/linux
user/admin I find this kind of information helpful and very difficult to
find in this (simplified) state elsewhere.  I know I have a lot of reading
to do before I know everything so it is very kind for those who have the
info to schmear it out for us who would otherwise not have it in a nice
clear list.

I am going to print your list, make sure I understand what everything is and
start writing my security policy.
