I'm trying out SSG. Great work!
I think I noticed a typo. Search for "veal" here and I think it should be "eval"...
And now on to the question... :-)
Does SSG generate (or plan to generate) remediation content? Check the very bottom of this page for an example...
I tried "generate fix" with the SSG content, but the resulting script was empty. I guess I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong, or if more needs to be added to SSG to provide remediation capabilities.

There doesn't seem to be a way to add new prose (ie from the SNAC guide) to the scap-security-guide, due to issues with well-formedness. File names, Linux keywords, and config file settings are wrapped in <xhtml:code> and <xhtml:pre> tags in ssg, but not in the SNAC guide, so anything that isn't well-formed within the SNAC prose breaks the xccdf.
There are also some cases where these settings are well-formed, but are still wrapped in the namespace (xhtml:code/pre) tags within the scap-security-guide. I'd like to keep the SNAC+scap-sec-guide merge consistent with the previous security-guide, but I can't seem to find an all-encompassing set of conditions to systematically add these tags where appropriate. I'm wondering if you guys know of a way to do this (other than manually).
If not, this would be great functionality to add for future use. If no one else is currently doing so, I'd like to work on it.
