The more people that pester me to get a release done, the more  
quickly it will be done (if the time it takes me to delete/reply to  
the messages exceeds that which it would take to do the release, then  
it just makes sense).

I know that almost no-one will go the CVS route, which is why I very  
rarely recommend it.

The situation is that 1.0.4 will work, but (with OE) has flawed  
filtering (iff you get ham that has spam in the To: and Subject:).   
1.1a1 will not work - you will get SpamBayes taking huge amounts of  
memory and corrupted databases.

The brick wall is the limited time I and the other developers have a  
the moment, which has held up 1.1a2 by a year or so.  However, it is  
now actually on its way (see previous message).


Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes.
