Having 0.102 points in Spambayes, this e-mail actually turned up in my
unsure box, because of the words follow, house, password, pc, please,
usual, viruses, zip, and (even stronger) attachement, security, virus
(even more strong) p.s., account and details. So, because this e-mail
has the same words multiple times it'll probably turn up in the unsure
box as well ;-)

So, let's include some hammy words:

original running unsubscribe fedora-list code import linux def getting
mailing call same already tool someone something gerrit, subject: ...
looks seems says nothing

That should do the trick ;-)

Gerrit.
