[spambayes-dev] FW: [Jocr-devels] redistribute gocr binaries?

Hi guys,
  On a bit of a whim, I mailed the jocr-devels list to try and get informal
approval for distributing their windows binary with spambayes.  I believe
that as we are not modifying the binary, as long as we point to the original
binary (and therefore implicitly pointing at their source tarball etc, as
required by the GPL) we should be fine.

Anyone have any comments or objections to us releasing spambayes with a gocr

I have no problems with that. I also try to improve gocr according to spam
