hey Vrata,

your demo is cool. I'm glad to see progress in integration with an 
installer. It's an important piece of a bigger "work flow" which is

anaconda -> oscap/scap-workbench -> spacewalk

Combination of these components enable users to:
* create pre-configured image - system is hardened before the first 
boot; no need to write complicated kickstarts!
* perform local or remote scans of "live" systems
* trigger remediation & customize content (tailoring)
* monitor security compliance from enterprise system manages solution

I consider it useful to have a support in the Initial Setup. It will 
basically run a scan and show report. That will prove that system is in 
compliance and nothing is messed up.

Where are you planning to post a documentation?
