Python httpd permission denied
I am running a python script as Apache CGI in
~/www/sitename/python/ All was working fine in F7 and F8 until
selinux-policy-3.0.8-58 arrived in updates. I've only now had time to
look at this and am not sure what the problem might be.

Apache error log reads:
[error] [client] python: can't open file
'/home/user/www/sitename/python/': [Errno 13] Permission denied

setroubleshoot: #012 SELinux is preventing the python from using
potentially mislabeled files <Unknown> (user_home_dir_t).#012 For
complete SELinux messages. run sealert -l

The script is labelled user_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t, I've also
tried httpd_sys_script_exec_t but get the same error.

Labelling as httpd_unconfined_script_exec_t DOES work, as do other
(non-CGI) pages. There don't seem to be any changes in the changelogs
for -57 and -58 which would affect this... any ideas?
