libservicelog-1.0.1-3 and libservicelog-devel-1.0.1-3 packages are currently present in RHEL6, but a
major rewrite, which altered the API, occurred in Dec 09. This request is to update both packages to

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.

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.

Comment 5 John Jarvis 2010-05-14 14:17:35 UTC
BZ 590010 is tracking Servicelog inclusion.
