Description of problem:
The development model of scap-security-guide project (happening at https://github.com/OpenSCAP/scap-security-guide) is pretty agile / prompt (in the sense the available SCAP content is evolving pretty quickly. For the purposes of statistics, based on previous experience, it's about 70 changes per release). The current version of scap-security-guide package in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 is based on upstream 0.1.18 version.
This bug is to track request of scap-security-guide RPM rebase to more recent (current upstream version) in upcoming releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
scap-security-guide version 0.1.19 has been released 28-09-2014:
Selected short preview of key fixes:
* support for XCCDF substitution has been added:
* generated HTML guide now includes SSG logo:
* umask supercompliance fixes:
* CPE fixes:
* multiple OVAL checks & remediations have been added
(the patch list is too long to be enumerated here, search
for 'added remediation' or 'new OVAL' in git log)
* many more stabilization fixes
Headlines of (upcoming) 0.1.20 features:
* RHEL-6 USGCB kickstart support,
* stabilization of RHEL-6 USGCB OVAL checks & remediations
To prepare for a RHEL 6.7 rebase, when should upstream have their code freeze?

From SSG upstream PoV there are two main features, that should go into future / next SSG releases:
* USGCB kickstart support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, and
* JBossEAP 5 content support.
Given the USGCB kickstart support is ~month away from completion, let's consider it will be implemented by the end of this year (time reserve due to end year holidays). Counting ~1,5 months for the second feature, we are in the middle of February. So let's round the date(s) as follows:
* 0.1.20 upstream release by end of this year,
* 0.1.21 at 20-th February of 2015 (the date to be easily memorable).
The RHEL 6.7 beta Package scap-security-guide-0.1.21-2.el6.noarch.rpm still has a dependency on openscap-utils, but it should depend on openscap-scanner as RHEL 6.7 beta now has a separate openscap-scanner package. Dependending on openscap-utils leads to installation of eg. rpm-build, rpmdevtools, gdb.
