Are you testing this on Fedora? If so, i can help you create proper
policy for both daemon and webapp. All i need is a "rpm -ql" and someone
that can test my policy and send feedback.

I recently also wrote policy for a motion detection software called
motion which is available on rpmfusion. That policy is not perfected
because it needs testing in not so standard scenarios, but a basic
configuration works just fine.
