DISA FSO opts to strip remediation content/capabilities out from the
content Red Hat gives them. In part this makes sense: DISA FSO's intention
is to provide pass/fail content, anything beyond that is a distraction for

The project you mention has caused more misinformation and confusion than
usefulness. That project has no ties to Red Hat, DISA, and while perhaps
using the STIG for inspiration, its hardening settings are largely
arbitrary and places systems into an unknown compliance state.
If you're seeking embedded remediation, consider using SCAP Security Guide
directly (shipping in RHEL as the "scap-security-guide" package, or
upstream content on GitHub). SSG ships in RHEL and serves as the upstream
for what Red Hat gives DISA FSO as part of the Vendor STIG Process.
You might also find NSA's SIMP project interesting, which fuses
SSG+Puppet+MCollective and other things. You can find their project here:
