Yes that is a good solution.

chcon -R -t httpd_sys_script_rw_t /var/spool/gosa

If you are using rawhide you can just add

/var/spool/gosa(/.*)?     system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_script_rw_t
to /etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts.local

And then RPM will pick it up on install.  We have not back ported this 
to FC3/RHEL4 yet.
