I did this on my automasscheck server that is a full mail server 
receiving spam and it's working fine/normal with the latest ruleqa build.

I have a slight concern after doing a diff on the two directories that 
are the before (old) and after finding some differences in files:

Only in old/:
Only in old/: languages
Only in old/: MIRRORED.BY
Only in old/: sa-update-pubkey.txt
Only in old/:
Only in old/:
Only in old/:
Only in old/:
Only in old/: user_prefs.template

See attached full diff output.

I am all for asking for help.  I didn't know that I could ask the dev@ 
list for stuff like this so that's good to know.
