Name        : openvas-manager
Product     : Fedora 21
Version     : 6.0.3
Release     : 3.fc21
URL         : http://www.openvas.org
Summary     : Manager Module for the Open Vulnerability Assessment System (OpenVAS)
Description :
The OpenVAS Manager is the central service that consolidates plain vulnerability
scanning into a full vulnerability management solution. The Manager controls the
Scanner via OTP and itself offers the XML-based, stateless OpenVAS Management
Protocol (OMP). All intelligence is implemented in the Manager so that it is
possible to implement various lean clients that will behave consistently e.g.
with regard to filtering or sorting scan results. The Manager also controls
a SQL database (sqlite-based) where all configuration and scan result data is
centrally stored.

Update Information:

Bump to openvas8 because of the issues found in previous versions.
This should be the first version with scanner really working on Fedora.
