Description Vilgot Fredenberg 2019-01-04 23:35:59 UTC
Building sec-policy/selinux-base with USE flag +doc installs html documentation in /usr/share/doc/selinux-base-<version>/<selinuxtype>/html/

This is currently being labeled as usr_t but should be labelled as httpd_sys_content_t.

To resolve being able to read it through Nginx I ran `semanage fcontext -a -t httpd_sys_content_t "/usr/share/doc/selinux-base(-.*)?/(mcs|targeted|strict|mls)/html(/.*)?"`.

I think this should be added to the base policy as well as html is usually read through a http server.

Looks like the refpolicy already contains this, although at "/usr/share/selinux-policy[^/]*/html(/.*)?".
