Description Blair Aitken 2017-07-25 15:53:35 EDT
* sosreport does not collect all information on rear configurations
* we'd like to request this enhancement be considered for future releases of sos

In the below example, you can see items that are apart of the rear configuration and logs, but are not picked up by sosreport.

root@r69 ~ $ find /etc /var/log | grep rear

root@r69 ~ $ cd sosreport 

root@r69 ~/sosreport $ find etc/ var/log | grep rear

SUMMARY: we'd like sosreport to collect /etc/rear/* & /var/log/rear/*

I opened this same BZ for RHEL 7: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1474976
