Subject [Bug 5743] New: Textcat - create "not_ok_locales"
Date Fri, 07 Dec 2007 13:51:52 GMT

           Summary: Textcat - create "not_ok_locales"
           Product: Spamassassin
           Version: 3.2.3
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Plugins

There have been several requests for this option, at least one of which is in a
cluttered bug.

The most valid argument I've seen so far came from stefan.jakobs, who
essentially argued if you have a university, you may have very few
not_ok_locales as compared to ok_locales.

The not_ok_locales should effectively subtract off from the existing list the
same way ok_locales.

 The sticky part is that ok_locales will reset to an empty list on first use,
and not_ok_locales would essentially deduct from whatever the current list is,
even if it's "all".

This might be a little confusing, but relatively harmless, as doing:

not_ok_locales se
ok_locales en

The ok_locales would be ignored.

ok_locales en
not_ok_locales se

the not_ok would be ignored, as se isn't in the list of ok anymore.

We will have to try to clearly document the fact that this isn't a black/white
pair, but really add and subtract from the same "ok" list.
