Selinux is not going to work at all for things like revisor (and
pungi/livecd-creator).  Both make use of chroots to install packages
into, and in certain cases you can wind up causing lots of harm to your
host system (installing a new policy in the chroot will actually cause
that policy to activate on the running kernel and then you have policy
that doesn't match labels, watch the fun!).

It is strongly recommended that you disable SELinux or at least put it
in permissive if you're going to be doing composes.
