Think this is the 'editarea' we ship to allow folks a text editor UI within Satellite. Used in a few areas of product. 

Grabbing src rpm

[cperry@cperry editarea]$ grep -irl brain * 
[cperry@cperry editarea]$ 

Within spacewalk code, we use edit area for:

[cperry@cperry java]$ grep -ir editarea *
code/webapp/WEB-INF/pages/common/fragments/editarea.jspf:<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="/editarea/edit_area_full.js"></script>
code/webapp/WEB-INF/pages/common/fragments/configuration/files/contents.jspf:<%@ include file="/WEB-INF/pages/common/fragments/editarea.jspf" %>
code/webapp/WEB-INF/pages/common/fragments/configuration/channel/create.jspf:<%@ include file="/WEB-INF/pages/common/fragments/editarea.jspf" %>
code/webapp/WEB-INF/pages/common/fragments/kickstart/advanced/details.jspf:<%@ include file="/WEB-INF/pages/common/fragments/editarea.jspf" %>
code/webapp/WEB-INF/pages/admin/catalina.jsp:<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="/editarea/edit_area_full.js"></script>
code/webapp/WEB-INF/pages/kickstart/cobbler/snippetview.jsp:<%@ include file="/WEB-INF/pages/common/fragments/editarea.jspf" %>
code/webapp/WEB-INF/pages/kickstart/cobbler/snippetdetails.jsp:<%@ include file="/WEB-INF/pages/common/fragments/editarea.jspf" %>
code/webapp/WEB-INF/pages/kickstart/scriptcreate.jsp:<%@ include file="/WEB-INF/pages/common/fragments/editarea.jspf" %>
code/webapp/WEB-INF/pages/kickstart/scriptedit.jsp:<%@ include file="/WEB-INF/pages/common/fragments/editarea.jspf" %>
spacewalk-java.spec:- making the editarea not highlight by default (jsherril@redhat.com)
spacewalk-java.spec:- fixed syntax highliging in editarea textareas
spacewalk-java.spec:- Make spacewalk use the editarea RPM and remove supplied editarea files (colin.coe@gmail.com)
[cperry@cperry java]$ 

So, configuration, kickstart scripts and cobbler snippets. 

We can likely modify editarea src.rpm with patch to remove a bunch of these languages which do not make sense in anaconda and Linux config stuff in general.

Note to developer, whereas technically you can have anything at all in in kickstart snippet, the desire here is to limit the syntax highlighting options in the editor to common useful languages. I'm going to define those languages as:

bash, perl, php, python, ruby, xml

Note in addition that if you change the languages available in the editarea jar, you will be affecting every place we use an editarea, so including (but not limited to)

1) config file editing
2) kickstart snippets
3) kickstart pre/post sections
