Description jidanni 2007-08-18 18:15:32 UTC
In Mail::SpamAssassin::Conf at
       score SYMBOLIC_TEST_NAME n.nn [ n.nn n.nn n.nn ]
mention how to (or and implement) make
       score MY_TEST the_same_as_the_score_of SOME_OTHER_TEST
without needing to hardwire the current values of OTHER_TEST's score
into the (user_prefs) file.

P.S., on Debian that man page looks like
  Mail::SpamAssassin::CoUserpContributed Perl DocumMail::SpamAssassin::Conf(3pm)
at its first line...

meta_score patch (vs svn)

This patch adds the new configuration setting "meta_score", which is used like:

meta_score TEST_A (TEST_B + TEST_C)

This is overkill for the requested feature, but with the ARITH_EXPRESSION_LEXER
regexp already defined for meta test lexing, doing it this way isn't that hard.

meta_score patch (vs svn)

Oops, was using ".." instead of "." for the string catenation operator;
uploaded fixed patch.
