Description Jan Pokorný 2012-10-17 17:29:35 EDT
I have accidentally found out that man pages included selinux-policy
do not necessarily reflect the policy itself.

$ man ricci_selinux
> [...]
> SELinux defines port types to represent TCP and UDP ports.
> You can see the types associated with a port by using the following
> command:
> semanage port -l
> Policy  governs  the access confined processes have to these ports.
> SELinux ricci policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their
> ricci processes in as secure a method as possible.
> The following port types are defined for ricci:
> ricci_modcluster_port_t
> Default Defined Ports:
>           tcp 8021
> [...]

This does not reflect a real state as modcluster uses port 16851 as
is also contained in the policy.

Please make the selinux-policy man pages reflect the actual policy
that is included in the same package.

$ rpm -qf /usr/share/man/man8/ricci_selinux.8.gz
