Without looking I suspect it is because the newer packages fit into the
filesystem better so are probably covered by existing SELinux rules.
When it was installed in /opt/fedora-ds alone there was no security
context covering it.
Installing into /opt of a recent rawhide showed no problems. Even if it
was a problem it would have been a _very_ easy fix either in the policy
package or the directory server packages.
It probably heavily depends on which release you're installing it
I think that we need to work to resolve any issues and remove that
suggestion. At the very least it needs to specify specific OS and
directory server releases.
That blanket statement is very harmful and unnecessary.
I'll be happy to help you resolve any issues - just give me the specific
problems that you are seeing.
