Re: [Open-scap] Editing XCCDF/OVAL

Hi Svan,

scap-workbench is a tool developed by us. It allows user to do the local scan, 
"tailor"(adjust) XCCDF checklist profile and edit XCCDF content.

rectracker is a new to me. It looks it use mysql. Good.

What all these have in common is that they are all GUI tools. I'd like to 
point you at this approach:


It's a combination of: Makefiles, XSLT, XML, SCC and GIT. 
Please don't get scared now. It might look like a mess but it's not. ;) 
Personally, I like it more then GUI approach. 

* Version control system comes very handy in process of content development. 
(Undo, Redo, History, ...)
* SCC gets you thru OVAL disadventages. 
* XML for XCCDF is doable. You can also use XML editor. 
* XSLT for html.
* Finally, Makefile to "build" it a all.

Please take a look and I'll be glad if you share your opinion with us.
