Just 4 hours in and you're going off like that?

What do you expect by a volunteer driven Open Source project? 24/7
support with a guaranteed reaction time of less than an hour?

You're free to assume whatever floats your boat. You're still wrong,
though, even if you *assume* you are right.

It is also pretty obvious you didn't bother to read the docs [1] before
going all ranty.

spamass-milter is NOT part of SA.

Thus, the patch you're referring to cannot and will never be added to
SA. No matter how hard you try to blame SA for not including the
spamass-milter patch...

char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0.@ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";
main(){ char h,m=h=*t++,*x=t+2*h,c,i,l=*x,s=0; for (i=0;i<l;i++){ i%8? c<<=1:
(c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0;
