Currently there is none.  You could do it in a post install script, 
something like

[ -x /usr/sbin/selinuxenabled] && /usr/sbin/selinux/enabled && chcon -t 
httpd_sys_script_rw_t /var/spool/gosa

Or you could ask the guy doing the policy for Fedora to add a line to 
default policy to do this automagically. 
Oh right that is me.  :^) I will add this line to policy and submit it 
for upstream acceptance.
