Description Sidney Markowitz 2008-01-14 13:30:18 UTC
I would like new functionality for the RuleQA web app that allows one to specify
a boolean combination of rules to, for example, see how many spams hit Rule A
but did not hit any of Rules B, C, or D, and zoom in on the results by corpus
submitter and see the log entries for those hits. One way of implementing the UI
for this would be to allow for specifying a meta rule and then display results
just like for any other rule.

The current display of overlap results provides some of the information that I
am looking for in such a browser, but does not have the specificity I need.
Right now I get what I want by defining a meta rule in my sandbox and waiting
for the next nightly run to see the results. This enhancement would eliminate
the 24 hour wait for results.

ugh, this is tricky :(  there's a lot of logic in hit-frequences
that we'll have to duplicate/reuse somehow...
Comment 2 Justin Mason 2008-03-11 09:18:28 UTC
I think I'll give up on this.  I can't see a way to do it to be honest -- it'll be a significant chunk of new code.
