I would use alerts with alert_file.sh (with custom modifications if
desired) to record them to a file, then have your process look at that.
(Tip: if you only care about events since the last boot, put the file
in /run so you don't have to worry about cleaning it up.)

Correct, configuration changes are not alerted. The only way I know of
to get configuration changes is to use the C API for update/replace
callbacks. It would also be possible to poll the configuration at
intervals and use crm_diff to compare them, but that's probably not any
