This is good news. Thanks.

Yes, I'm not a fan of security 'tools' that merely read a version
number and declare one guilty of having vulnerabilities based on that
alone, unfortunately though that enlightened view is not shared by the
troglodytes that populate most security scanning teams.

This is excellent news! I appreciate this a great deal!

Also extraordinarily helpful! I knew that there had to be a way to do
this, but the various instruction sets and how-tos about using
Pacemaker usually completely ignore these type of elements, and there
wasn't much coming up with web searches on the topic (or my seartch
terms were simply inappropriate.) But having this flexibility is
excellent! Again, thanks for the instructions on this!
