Exclamation Where to report selinux problem with /usr/share/fonts /usr/share/X11/fonts

In Fedora 12, I recently did a

sudo yum -y update

This, among other things, installed a new kernel and replaced a collection of lyx-* packages with a single lyx-fonts package. After rebooting, the GDM login showed all characters as rectangles. Omitting all the dead ends I tried from the narrative, I ssh'd in, found this message in /var/log/gdm/:0-greeter.log:

(plymouth-log-viewer:21399): Pango-WARNING **: failed to choose a font, expect u
gly output. engine-type='PangoRenderFc', script='latin'

I then found this message in /var/log/messages:

setroubleshoot: SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon "read" access to /usr/share/X11/fonts. For complete SELinux messages. run sealert -l 510e7c55-8f69-47c1-8bc8-c71b56a8903a

...and a similar message concerning /usr/share/fonts. Following the sealert advice, I did

sudo restorecon /usr/share/fonts
sudo restorecon/usr/share/X11/fonts

QUESTION: I didn't see any other obvious font-related updates, so I'd like to report a problem with lyx-fonts. I don't see lyx-fonts or any LyX related packages in bugzilla.redhat.com. Where do I report this problem?
