Description Bojan Smojver 2007-03-02 22:15:21 UTC
Description of problem:

A viewvc package is under review (bug #230512) right now and it would be best if
instead of having a -selinux subpackage, we could get that line into file
contexts of regular policy.

We'd need this to be:

/var/spool/viewvc(/.*)?    system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_script_rw_t:s0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2007-03-20 16:02:00 UTC
Fixed in selinux-policy-2.5.9-1.fc7

Comment 2 Bojan Smojver 2007-03-21 20:09:32 UTC
Thanks for that. BTW, the tarball (serefpolicy-2.5.9.tgz) in the source RPM
contains an invalid link:

policy/.#global_tunables ->

Not sure if that's there on purpose...

Comment 3 Bojan Smojver 2007-03-21 20:44:00 UTC
A stupid question: where in the selinux-policy source RPM can I find references
to viewvc? I greped the whole thing but couldn't see anything. That was for -2,
which is currently in Rawhide...

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2007-03-23 14:33:54 UTC
selinux-policy-2.5.9-1.fc7.src.rpm should be available.

But it looks like the latest package does not have the viewvc file context.
selinux-policy-2.5.10-1 will have it.

Comment 5 Bojan Smojver 2007-03-30 01:29:24 UTC
This can be closed now, as it has been fixed in both development and FC6.
