Description Adrian Reber 2006-04-19 18:53:39 UTC
Spec URL:
Bogofilter is a Bayesian spam filter.  In its normal mode of
operation, it takes an email message or other text on standard input,
does a statistical check against lists of "good" and "bad" words, and
returns a status code indicating whether or not the message is spam.
Bogofilter is designed with fast algorithms (including Berkeley DB system),
coded directly in C, and tuned for speed, so it can be used for production
by sites that process a lot of mail.

a1e201e544a3d9181b44b051b46435c3  bogofilter-1.0.2.tar.gz.1
OK - Compiles and builds on one arch at least.
(builds fine in devel mock and fc5)
OK - All required buildrequires included?
OK - Owns all directories it creates.
OK - No duplicate files in %files listing.
OK - Permissions on files correct.
OK - Clean section correct.
OK - Macros consistant.
OK - Code not content.
OK - Doesn't own any files/dirs that are already owned by others.

Minor issues:

1. The Source url doesn't work for me... doesn't appear
to work quite the same as
works here.

It's a shame that it can't be built with all the possible
database backends and let it be a run time choice which to use.

I don't see any blockers, so this package is APPROVED.
