Description Milan Zázrivec 2008-05-23 09:14:26 EDT
Description of problem:
dovecot package should own /etc/pki/dovecot/private directory. Currently
it owns files under it, not the directory itself. This setup leads to
/etc/pki/dovecot/private directory being created with incorrect selinux

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
dovecot-1.0.7-2.el5 / RHEL5.2 GA

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL5.2, dovecot included, selinux enabled
2. # rpm -qf /etc/pki/dovecot/private
3. # ls -dZ /etc/pki/dovecot/private
4. # matchpathcon /etc/pki/dovecot/private
Actual results:
# rpm -qf /etc/pki/dovecot/private
file /etc/pki/dovecot/private is not owned by any package
# ls -dZ /etc/pki/dovecot/private
drwxr-xr-x  root root system_u:object_r:cert_t:s0      /etc/pki/dovecot/private
# matchpathcon /etc/pki/dovecot/private
/etc/pki/dovecot/private        system_u:object_r:dovecot_cert_t:s0

Additional info:
Low priority, unlikely to cause any harm.
