 in OVAL. Support for OVAL tests will be extended as the ovaldi integration
 matures.
 
+Once you have successfully enabled support for OVAL plugins, the plugins will
+show up in the OpenVAS-Client in the ``OVAL definitions'' family. Most plugins
+will return one of the following values: ``true'', ``false'' or ``unknown''.
+These values are defined as follows:
+\begin{description}
+ \item[true] The tests evaluated by ovaldi indicated that the vulnerability
+described in the definition is very likely to be present on the system.
+ \item[false] The tests evaluated by ovaldi indicated that the vulnerability
+described in the definition is not likely to be present on the system.
+ \item[unknown] The tests evaluated by ovaldi were inconclusive or ovaldi was
+unable to execute all tests required for this evaluation.
+\end{description}
+
+Note that a large number of tests will return ``unknown'' until extended OVAL
+support in OpenVAS has been established.
+
+The results of the OVAL definitions will be shown in the same way as the
+results for other plugins, allowing you to assess the results conveniently from
+within OpenVAS-Client.
