Subject [Bug 5745] New: textcat - add not_ok_languages
Date Fri, 07 Dec 2007 14:13:21 GMT

           Summary: textcat - add not_ok_languages
           Product: Spamassassin
           Version: 3.2.3
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Plugins

The arguments of Bug 5743 for ok_locales are equally applicable to ok_languages.
(the following is a search-replace copy of bug 5743)

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_lanaguages as compared to ok_lanaguages.

The not_ok_lanaguages should effectively subtract off from the existing list the
same way ok_lanaguages.

 The sticky part is that ok_lanaguages will reset to an empty list on first use,
and not_ok_lanaguages 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_lanaguages se
ok_lanaguages en

The ok_lanaguages would be ignored.

ok_lanaguages en
not_ok_lanaguages 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.
