3. Business Case
Several RAS and server management tools, such as IBM Director, use servicelog to access a history of
system events. In Dec of last year, we had to introduce a new API, v1.1, which merges the old 0.2.9
API with that of v1.0. We need to get this new API into RHEL6, in order to allow Director to manage
a RHEL6 lpar.

Latest code version is still 1.1.9, and the link provided in the feature description is still valid.
Fixed in libservicelog-1.1.9-1.el6
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
Just an update to newer version.
Pasting email clarification from IBM contact on this request just to make sure we get everything done:
This is odd; to me, it appears like the (463284) request was meant to add the servicelog package, but somehow it got garbled and resulted in the addition of only libservicelog.
To clarify, libservicelog and servicelog work together to provide the event DB, notifications, and repair functions. Ideally we want both to be present.
From where things currently stand, it seems we need to rebase libservicelog to 1.1.9, then add servicelog-1.1.7 since, at least as of RHEL6-snapshot1 (from may 7, ftp3), it is not yet present.
BZ 590010 is tracking Servicelog inclusion.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.
