Well, maybe, but this is BackupPC installed from the Fedora
repositories via yum. So if it's not pilot error on my part, then
even if I learn how to write the local policy to allow it, everyone
else who installs BackupPC is likely to have this problem.

I've filed a bug on it, following the message from Jonathan
Underwood:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=390881

I filed it as a bug in BackupPC since I didn't know whether changes
belonged there or in the selinux policy.

When someone writes a policy, then it can be attached to the bug report
or reference by it, and the policy can be added to the appropriate
Fedora repo, either as part of the BackupPC package, or as something it
requires.





I've filed a bug on it, following the message from Jonathan

I think that's a good place, the first thing users will see is "it
doesn't work, it must be broken.
