[extras] New package openscap-daemon
Last modified: 2017-01-12 16:32:58 EST
Description of problem:
Need a new package in RHEL7 extras called "openscap-daemon". We already have a spec file in Fedora EPEL7, see http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/rpms/openscap-daemon.git/tree/?h=epel7
This package is required for the "atomic scan" functionality, see https://martin.preisler.me/2015/11/atomic-scan-and-openscap-daemon/
Upstream repo: https://github.com/OpenSCAP/openscap-daemon/
Upstream web: https://www.open-scap.org/tools/openscap-daemon/
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Expected devel owner: Martin Preisler (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Product Management has reviewed and declined this request.
You may appeal this decision by reopening this request.
I am reopening this because I find the decision quite strange.
OpenSCAP-daemon is too low level in the stack to be in Satellite or Cloudforms channels. We are already using it in Atomic. We plan to use it in Sat6, Cloudforms, Cockpit and other projects to unify the OpenSCAP scanning for generic targets. Are we expected to push the package to every one of these channels?
Moving 6.2 bugs out to sat-backlog.
