Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2008:0465 normal SHIPPED_LIVE selinux-policy bug fix update 2008-05-20 14:36:31 UTC

Description Max Kanat-Alexander 2007-12-16 01:45:37 UTC
Postfix and mailman need to interact in three ways:

1) You have to run postalias on /etc/mailman/aliases and postmap on

2) Postfix has to be able to read /etc/mailman/aliases and
/etc/mailan/virtual-mailman in order to deliver messages

3) Postfix has to be able to actually deliver messages to mailman.

The attached file contains the AVCs generated by all three of these actions.
Each separate set of actions is separated by a blank line.

This bug is somewhat similar to bug 236455 and bug 234773 (both Fedora bugs).
