OK, that's definitely something that a plugin can also do -- analyze the
contents if the message is in ARF format, and generate new headers
for the "marked-up" output.

This was a suggested idea for the Google Summer of Code 2006;
I'm adding it to the bugzilla for future use, and in case anyone feels
like implementing it.

Subject ID: spamassassin-arf-plugin
Keywords: arf, plugins, reporting, perl
Description: http://issues.apache.org/SpamAssassin/show_bug.cgi?id=4812 : ARF is
a spam-report format for feedback loops for ISPs; there's been some interest in
SpamAssassin understanding this and being able to match metadata inside the
messages being reported.  (This task may be too short for SoC purposes, however.)

Did you intend to make this depend on bug 4560 instead of bug 4590?
Comment 4 Justin Mason 2006-05-26 14:44:50 UTC
thanks Tom -- yes.

No one has worked on it from what I can tell.  Please keep discussions like this to the dev mailing list.
