Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 185812
The man page for restorecon doesn't document whether sym links are followed.

Description of problem:
The man page for restorecon doesn't say how -R behaves when there are sym links.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man restorecon
It looks like there is a changelog entry indicating that restorecon isn't
supposed to follow symlinks and/or apply changes to targets of sym links.
restorecon will not follow symbolic links.
Fixed in rawhide.
I can confirm that the man page has a note that it does NOT follow symbolic links.
Closing this bug out. If you see any further problem with it, feel free to
re-open or file a new bug against the latest version.
