So they're the latest selinux policy packages.
The changelog says 3.10.0-120 allowed glance to connect to mysql.
Though looking at the change it added:


That only allows connecting on a local unix stream socket I think.
We might have to add this rule for more general connections?

  allow glance_registry_t mysqld_port_t:tcp_socket name_connect;

You could test it out temporarily like:

  echo 'type=AVC ... rest from above' | audit2allow -M openstack-glance
  semodule -i openstack-glance.pp

Is your mysql server on a separate system to the glance-registry service?
Could you send the output from:

  grep sql_connection /etc/glance/glance-registry.conf
