Hello all.

I would like to share something that I have been working on for GTRI 
(Georgia Tech Research Institute).  Something we are interested in is an 
easier way to view and review audits generated by the Linux auditing 
subsystem.  Since Spacewalk accomplishes many other tasks that are 
useful for us, we decided to integrate this functionality into Spacewalk.

Here I must mention two disclaimers.
1) Yes, we have heard of freeIPA.  This did not suit our needs, nor have 
they gotten past the 'I' of IPA (Identity, Policy, Audit).
2) I am not exactly a Java programmer, although I can program in Java. 
If some of my code is written differently than style or common sense 
dictates, my apologies :)

I wrote up a small introduction to the patch, located here:
The patch is linked at the bottom of the site.

I would appreciate your review and comments.
