Lynis looks like it has a good future and potential.
I've noticed that several bugs have been reported against the your recently
I'm curious if you've a production 'schedule' of any sort?
Are you doing all the work on this, or do you have some assistance?
Will you be releasing a new version with bug-corrections anytime soon?
Would you have something like Bugzilla where bugs can be submitted and tracked
(or considered it)?
I look forward to trying it out and would be willing to give feedback on what I
find. Other than
the public mailing list where other bugs have been reported recently, do you have
you prefer for bug reports?
Good luck with your Linux security audit tool!

Subject: [tool] Unix auditing, Lynis 1.2.5

tool can be executed without a required installation and displays the outcome of
the tests on the screen. Extended information can be found in the log file,
including all the results of tests.
After many releases I want to ask to try this new version and give me input about
what you like to see when checking Unix systems for their security strenghts and
