Slackware should not have to have those docs because grsecurity and selinux are not related to slackware.

I don't know who gave you the idea that grsecurity and selinux were related to any distro. As far as I know, both projects and distro agnostic.

This is much like slackware not including documentation for how to use OpenOffice.

How can you compared an entire infrastructure to a desktop application? Going by your logic, Slackware wouldn't have any documentation, as users would be reading README files, NEWS files and INSTALL.TXTs.

All the documentation that you need is available on the selinux and grsecurity sites.

Yeah, I guess Gentoo is just duplicating efforts.

If you can't figure out how to implement it, maybe you should get a better sysadmin.

Sure, and the better sysadmin will magically deploy a hardened-slackware box without docs!!!!! I guess I'm just dumb.

We all know that gentoo has gone above and beyond on documentation, and I commend them on that.

I doubt many people know that.
