> Do you think oscap.exe with no evaluation support is useful?
Many within the US Gov are using Windows desktops. This gives them a GUI
tool to tailor their content and either SCP it back to their server or
throw it into RHN Satellite. HUGE usability improvement!
Yeah but that is SCAP Workbench that does the tailoring. oscap.exe is
not used at all in the current Windows build of workbench.
I will still build it and include it in the future but the only valid
use cases I can think of are oscap info, datastream splitting and
Also, having a "OpenSCAP for Windows v1" that only does
tailoring is still very worthwhile. This would allow customers to get
the Windows build on their approved product list (which frequently takes
forever!), ensuring that when v1.future or v2.0 comes out, the software
is already a known entity.
Is there anything I can do to make workbench+openscap more likely to be
added into approved product lists? What are the common requirements?
