$0.02 from a woman of colour ...

I personally find stuff like this just a little bit patronising ... more of a matter of kicking
the real problem into the weeds than actually doing anything practical to 'fix' it.

Right up there with Mercedes decision to paint their $100 Million F1 cars black.

I'm sure the intent was positive though ...

Subject: IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR PEOPLE RUNNING TRUNK re: [Bug 7826] Improve language around
whitelist/blacklist and master/slave

IMPORTANT NOTICE

If you are running trunk, we are working on changing terms like whitelist to welcomelist and
blacklist to blocklist.

https://bz.apache.org/SpamAssassin/show_bug.cgi?id=7826

The first test of this work is done with allowlist_to replacing whitelist_to
Committed revision 1879456.

If you are using trunk, there may be disruption since routines, plugins and rule changes will
all interweave.

IF YOU ARE RUNNING TRUNK: I recommend you subscribe to the dev@spamassassin.apache.org<mailto:dev@spamassassin.apache.org>
mailing list to stay abreast of the changes.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Regards,
KAM
