[Clip] New to Clip

During the last year we (Tresys) have been focusing our efforts on changing
how the lockdown and SCAP validation content of CLIP is built and used as
part of the secstate project (https://fedorahosted.org/secstate/). While
that has been successful, we currently have a dilemma: secstate and it's
associated content aren't ready to go and CLIP needs updating for RHEL 5.5.
Basically, we're trying to decide whether we can get the future path ready
to go quickly enough for current needs or whether we should keep current
CLIP updated for RHEL 5 and move to secstate for RHEL 6.
My guess is that we'll try to do at least one more CLIP release to cover
RHEL 5.5. We have some patches internally and we've had some conversations
with other CLIP users offline about changes that they did for 5.5. Do you
have any interest in helping test a 5.5 version?
At this time we are not allowing external people to have commit authority to
the repository. If you have a patch for the project, please send the patch
to the list so everyone can review and give feedback and if it meets the
standards and fixes a bug we'll do our best to include it.
Thanks for the questions and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
