There is, actually, but I can see it isn't documented in the
"xymondboard" list of available fields.
There is an "acklist" field available. Try this:
$ xymon 127.0.0.1 \
"xymondboard fields=hostname,testname,acklist host=foo test=disk"
foo|disk|1299619718:1299706118:1:henrik:Ack message text\n
The two numbers first are the Unix "epoch" timestamp for when the ack
was done, and when it expires. The the "ack level", the user who sent
the ack, and the text. In the text, newlines, tabs and pipe-chars show
up as "\n", "\t" and "\p", respectively.
There are a couple more fields in the xymondboard data that haven't made
it into the man-page. Will fix that.
