Description Robert Scheck 2013-10-24 05:36:39 EDT
Description of problem:
Package spamassassin-3.3.1-2.el5 from 2011 contains long and extended script
/usr/share/spamassassin/sa-update.cron, which takes care about SpamAssassin
channels, imports GPG keys as needed and finally also restarts services such
as SpamAssassin (spamd), Amavisd-New and MIMEDefang if needed.

Compared to that, package spamassassin-3.3.1-4.el5 is a simple stupid script
that only does sa-update(1) (after sleeping for random time) and restarts a
possible SpamAssassin server process (spamd) - no handling of Amavisd-New or
MIMEDefang anymore.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Everytime, just update from older SpamAssassin to latest in RHEL 5.

Actual results:
SpamAssassin 3.3.1-4.el5 cripples /usr/share/spamassassin/sa-update.cron.

Expected results:
Non-crippled /usr/share/spamassassin/sa-update.cron like 3.3.1-2.el5 again.

Additional info:
As even Fedora Rawhide ships the more extended script (see Fedora GIT), I do
not see any reason to deal with that (unintended?) new change.

Cross-filed ticket 00970061 in the Red Hat customer portal.
Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2013-10-24 05:41:57 EDT
Sorry, I have to correct myself here: I mixed up RHEL 5 and 6. Actually even
spamassassin-3.3.1-2.el5 ships that small and crippled version of the cronjob.
Instead I would like to raise the request to ship the more enhanced version of
/usr/share/spamassassin/sa-update.cron of RHEL 6 also in RHEL 5 hereby.
