Summary0005166: SELinux policy problem -> Creates httpd_t problem
DescriptionAfter installing ReviewBoard and having some Problems using pysvn I found out that a SELinux caused de problem:

$> audit2allow < /var/log/audit/audit.log

#============= httpd_t ==============
allow httpd_t memcache_port_t:tcp_socket name_connect;
allow httpd_t port_t:tcp_socket name_connect;
allow httpd_t smtp_port_t:tcp_socket name_connect;

So I ran:

$> audit2allow -a -M reviewboard
$> semodule -i reviewboard.pp

After that everything went well
Steps To ReproduceAfter a succesfull install of ReviewBoard (, log in as admin and add a new repository, this causes an error:
SVN: Failed to get repository information for svn://svnServer/.../trunk: Can't connect to host 'svnServer.local': Permission denied
TagsNo tags attached.

The default selinux policy does not allow httpd to connect to a network (svnServer.local / svn port).

httpd_can_network_connect --> off

Since you created a custom policy it better to fill a bug in upstream bugzilla [1] (though it seems to be a normal behavior)
