Comment 2 Bryn M. Reeves 2012-04-12 06:17:10 EDT
sos-2.2-8.el6 is pretty old now (6.1). Newer releases expand the set of files collected from /etc.

We cannot collect all of /etc for security and privacy reasons: there are numerous files that may exist in this directory tree that must not be collected (private keys, certificates, CA definitions, files containing plaintext passwords, shadow, ...).

Please request individual files or groups of files for consideration - these are normally straightforward RFEs that can be included in the next available update.
