[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I hereby orphan the spamprobe package.

Note that there has not been any upstream release for years.
Maintenance mostly consist in recompiling and testing it against newer
version of dependencies (libdb in particular).

This package provides a spam filter based on the article 'A Plan for
Spam' by Paul Graham. It uses a database (either BerkeleyDB or a simpler
hash file) to store one- and two-word phrases. Only certain headers are
analyzed and HTML tags are ignored to prevent false positives of legitimate
HTML emails. Image attachments are considered as words that can signal
spam. It can be simply integrated with procmail or maildrop to filter spam on
incoming mail.
