Takes given SCAP input(s) and makes an RPM package that contains them. The result RPM can be installed using # yum install ./package-name-1-1.rpm which will put the contents into /usr/share/xml/scap. No dependency on OpenSCAP is enforced in the output package, so you can use any SCAP-capable scanner to evaluate the content.
