Comment 2 Christopher Meng 2013-11-16 15:14:05 UTC
Advice: You can move %global to the top so it will look more like global ;)

Comment 3 Michael S. 2013-11-16 15:37:31 UTC
I also have a selinux policy for ramond, but I am not sure how we should handle the fact this can and should run commands ( ie, what kind of access should the command have )

Comment 4 Petr Pisar 2013-11-18 16:59:20 UTC
I've already sent the patch to the maintainer. Though without any response so far.

I guess preventing execve() by SELinux is not a good idea.

Comment 5 Petr Pisar 2013-11-18 17:00:22 UTC

Comment 6 Gwyn Ciesla 2013-11-18 17:52:56 UTC
Git done (by process-git-requests).

Comment 7 Petr Pisar 2013-11-19 07:29:39 UTC
Maybe we could introduce a new file type which ramond would only be allowed to execute. Then the user would declare assign the file type label to a script of his choice. And that script would be allowed to execute anything.

Or even we could predefine such a script file and mark it as a configuration file.
