The requires for libxml2-python was in the most current F-7 version 1.10.6-1,
but that version had to be pulled because it had a dependency on selinux-policy
being at least 2.6.4-45 was wasn't available at the time. That version has since
become available. At that time setroubleshoot-1.10.6-1 should probably have been
repushed, but it wasn't.

Perhaps you might like to try installing setroubleshoot-1.10.6-1 and report back
if you have any problems. You can download it here:


The analysis plugins were split out into their own package so you'll need to
satisfy the dependency on setroubleshoot-plugins, the F-7 version can be
obtained here:

I've upgraded to F-8 in the meanwhile, using 1.10.7-1.fc8.
In this version the dependency is set and, so to me the problem is solved.
