Replicate SpamAssassin Bugzilla e-mail comment setup on Ajax

         Key: INFRA-589
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-589
     Project: Infrastructure
        Type: Sub-task
  Components: Mail (qmail)  
 Environment: ajax
    Reporter: Sander Temme
    Priority: Critical

SpamAssassin Bugzilla has a widely used e-mail comment facility that is not present in its
new environment (ajax). It would be a Very Good Thing to replicate this environment on ajax.

The easiest way according to Theo would be to accept SMTP for bugzilla.spamassassin.org. From
an Instant Message conversation with him:

theovandinter (9:03:19 PM): for the incoming mail, basically we have a .procmailrc where the
mails go through:
theovandinter (9:03:20 PM): BUGZILLA_HOME=/var/www/html/contrib

* ^Subject: .*\[Bug .*\]
RESULT=|(cd $BUGZILLA_HOME && ./bugzilla_email_append.pl)

theovandinter (9:03:39 PM): which deals with the incoming mails but ignores stuff that looks
like spam.
theovandinter (9:03:54 PM): or more correctly, anything that doesn't look like a bug response.
theovandinter (9:18:04 PM): my plan would basically be:
theovandinter (9:18:12 PM): ajax accepts for bugzilla.spamassassin.org,
theovandinter (9:18:40 PM): by default, all mails goto the appropriate account,
theovandinter (9:18:46 PM): which uses the procmail script,
theovandinter (9:19:06 PM): such that spam and such is accepted, but /dev/null'ed very quickly.
theovandinter (9:20:05 PM): somewhere, something has to accept the mail and deal with it.
sandertemme (9:20:23 PM): I n
theovandinter (9:21:00 PM): I think it's less work to accept and /dev/null as opposed to upfront
trying to scan for spam and everything else.
sandertemme (9:24:00 PM): I'll suggest that to the guys who are familiar with the mail setup
on ajax. Actually, the I/O performance has become much better since I mounted the affected
drive noatime. We can probably do even better by writing logs to a different disk than the
one we're reading content from.

Currently, the SpamAssassin Bugzilla e-mail interface is broken. It would be a Good Thing
if we could move this into place forthwith.
