Thresholds for both are 150000. Graph here, updated weekly:
According to that, we're at 29003 spams. That matches the latest net run,
which it's based on: http://ruleqa.spamassassin.org/20120407-r1310705-n
So as of Saturday, we're at 19.3% of the spam corpora we need.
Spam age limit is 2 months.
The dev list gets an alert every day (from me) if updates haven't been
generated. It says:
"SpamAssassin version 3.3.2 has not had a rule update since 2012-02-25."
It's pretty obnoxious, but I think it's a big enough problem to justify it
being posted once a day (and I'm apparently not the only one).
New contributors aren't currently allowed due to
which has restricted visibility due to being a security bug. For the past
69 days, it has been waiting for a reply from Warren Togami to okay
declaring it not actually a security problem (which I am in favor of).
It seems this requires another member of the PMC (project management
committee) to step in and declare this not a security bug. Or for someone
with sufficient access to otherwise "fix" it, which I suspect is a very
small set of people.
Once that's cleared up, new people would be able to contribute data
(just logs of rule hits, not actual email) via
