Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.2.4nb6, Package name: bogofilter-1.2.4nb6, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Bogofilter is a mail filter that classifies mail as spam or ham
(non-spam) by a statistical analysis of the message's header and
content (body). It is able to learn from the user's classifications
and corrections.

The statistical technique is known as the Bayesian technique and
its use for spam was first described by Paul Graham in his article
A Plan For Spam. Gary Robinson, in his weblog Rants, suggests some
refinements for improved discrimination between spam and ham.
Bogofilter's primary algorithm uses the f(w) parameter and the
Fisher inverse chi-square technique that he describes.

Bogofilter is run by an MDA script to classify an incoming message
as spam or ham (using wordlists stored by BerkeleyDB). Bogofilter
provides processing for plain text and HTML. It supports multi-part
mime message with decoding of base64, quoted-printable, and
uuencoded text and ignores attachments, such as images.

Log message:
1.2.4	2013-07-01 (released)

	* Fix three crashes in command line and environment variable parsers
	  that caused NULL pointer dereferences with long option variants
	  of bogofilter --syslog-tag, or bogoutil --timestamp-date, or when
	  bogotune -M<file> cannot derive the bogofilter directory.
	  Reported by Alexandre Rebert, found with Mayhem tool.

	* Add getopt_long_chk(), a getopt_long variant that checks if the
	  overlapping short and long options agree on whether their argument
	  is not required, mandatory, or optional.  If they disagree, the
	  program aborts.

	* Fix a crash in command line parser that causes a NULL pointer
	  dereference when --db-cachesize is used without argument.
	  Found with getopt_long_chk().

	* Change lexer API/ABI a bit so as to work with flex 2.5.36 generated
	  lexers (for instance, on Fedora 18 "Spherical Cow") that flip the
	  type of yyleng from int to size_t. We use a signed long internally.

	* The bogofilter project was updated to the new SourceForge.net
	  platform. This has caused the URLs to change. Use one of these
	  commands for a read-only checkout:
	  svn checkout svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/bogofilter/code/trunk bogofilter
	  svn checkout http://svn.code.sf.net/p/bogofilter/code/trunk bogofilter

	  And developers would use, replacing joe by their sf.net login:
	  svn checkout --username=joe \ 
svn+ssh://m-a@svn.code.sf.net/p/bogofilter/code/trunk bogofilter

	* Add bogofilter-SA-2012-01 (CVE-2012-5468).
	* Fix XML form of Bulgarian FAQ so that it validates;
	  and validate XHTML at build time.
	* Mark Berkeley DB 5.2.42 and 5.3.21 supported.
