Emily J. Ratliff <ratliff@austin.ibm.com> - 
1. Feature Overview:
Feature Id:	[201635]
a. Name of Feature:	Sync watchdog package to latest available upstream
b. Feature Description
The watchdog package included in RHEL5 has been updated upstream from version 5.3.1 (currently in
RHEL5.1/RHEL5.2) to version 5.4. Updates include: Added 'another-chance' repair script written by
Erik Rossen, Applied some changes to RedHat init script, Added sysconf script for RedHat, Made
wd_keepalive honor config file option, Added wd_keealive manpage, Made wd_keepalive not start
without a watchdog device, Fixed some typos in watchdog manpage. We are requesting that the watchdog
RPM in RHEL5.4 be refreshed to version 5.4. http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/system/daemons/watchdog/

2. Feature Details:
Sponsor:	xSeries

Arch Specificity: Purely Common Code
Affects Kernel Modules: Yes
Delivery Mechanism: 
Category:	xSeries
Request Type:	Package - Update Version
d. Upstream Acceptance:	Accepted
Sponsor Priority	2
f. Severity: Medium
IBM Confidential:	no
Code Contribution:	no
g. Component Version Target:	watchdog package 5.4 or later

3. Business Case
Provides updated watchdog software in-distro, so customers don't have to download this directly from
Web. One of the most useful updates is the addition of a man page, which greatly reduces the
potential for mis-configuration, etc.
