Could you explain a bit more about the audit logs showing the ACL change =
data (and perhaps some example usage)? Our institution has had some of =
the same concerns brought up in this thread, and hope to implement one =
or a series of solutions to prevent damage from poorly thought out ACLs =
that users may create. While this would be an after-the-fact log scan, =
it would still prove to be extremely useful.
