policy-sources 1.9.2-12 installs policy.15

Description of problem:
The policy-1.9.2-12 installs policy.16 ... good, that problem fixed.
Unfortunately, policy-sources-1.9.2-12 then installs policy.15
/selinux/policyver says 16
It has been changed to install both, in case you are booting with an
older kernel. Why is this a problem. It is only loading the
currently running kernel's policy.
That does not look like what is happening to me. I installed this
"manually" ... first policy, then policy-sources. I am attaching the
console log so you can se what I am seeing.
Created attachment 99136 [details]
console log for installing policy and policy-sources
And then maybe I cannot actually see correctly!
I just looked at that again and, yes, it does install policy.15 and
policy.16 (at least that is what the timestamp says). With all of the
messages about 15 I missed the "cat /selinux/policyver"
Before I close this as notabug, is policy doing the right thing? It
did not actually update anything (added file_contexts.rpmnew and
Yes policy should not replace policy.16 or file_contexts if they have
been updated locally.
Policy-sources should however rebuild them and replace them will the
OK, then it looks like everything is doing the right thing ... now
back to testing the policies themselves.
