Description Cole Robinson 2015-04-25 19:08:33 UTC
Please extend all selinux policy to label ~/.local/share/libvirt/images and ~/.local/share/libvirt/boot as svirt_home_t. This is similar to what is done with ~/.local/share/gnome-boxes/images and ~/VirtualMachines (the latter uses virt_home_t but likely only because it predates svirt)

virt-manager uses the latter for user libvirtd sessions, but creating a top level $HOME directory is annoying and out of fashion these days, so I'd like to switch to .local/share/libvirt/images. That path is also sufficiently generic that other apps could use as well.

With libvirt doing the labelling these days I don't know how much the static labels matter, maybe if user turns off svirt it still plays a roll? But I'm sure you guys no best.

Please consider adding this to fedora 21+. Thanks!
