We are currently upgrading from dspam-3.6.8 to dspam-3.10.2.
Long ago we had functional issues with the web ui, especially regarding the delivery of false positives, and we made changes to prevent false positives (or whole quarantines) from disappearing, no matter how rarely.
I am now figuring out which changes are still useful, and I would like to present these to the DSPAM developers for consideration.
The first is fcntl file locking (like the DSPAM binary uses) when updating the DSPAM quarantine. Attached is a patch originally written by Ken Marshall.
If the developers find this useful, I will submit another patch or two in the next few days.
