Hello, I would like to work on this project for GSoC. Can you help me get 

> GSOC 2018 SpamAssassin Improve Headers for RBL research

>                 Key: COMDEV-267
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMDEV-267
>             Project: Community Development
>          Issue Type: Project
>          Components: GSoC/Mentoring ideas
>            Reporter: Kevin A. McGrail
>            Priority: Major

> add subtests to headers for SA for logging / research purposes
> parse out URIs from $report _URIDOMAINS(,)_ list
> add_header all Status _YESNO_, score=_SCORE_ required=_REQD_ tests=_TESTS_ 
> subtests=_SUBTESTS_ autolearn=_AUTOLEARN_ version=_VERSION_
> logic such as a tflag describe an RBL and then have rbls=_RBLS_.  So every 
> rbl test for PCCC will have a tflag that gives it a name like PCCC even if I 
> have 20 tests.  Same for URIBL or SURBL or SpamHause.  So the 
> rbls=PCCC,SURBL,URIBL as an overarching hit about which RBL hit.
> With this we can better identify overlap of RBLs.
> Also, it appears that URIDOMAINS(,)_ is not being interpolated in report 
> body. 
> Apache SpamAssassin is a mail filter to identify spam. It is an intelligent 
> email filter which uses a diverse range of tests to identify unsolicited bulk 
> email, more commonly known as Spam. These tests are applied to email headers 
> and content to classify email using advanced statistical methods. 
> In addition, SpamAssassin has a modular architecture that allows other 
> technologies to be quickly wielded against spam and is designed for easy 
> integration into virtually any email system. 
> It is primarily written in Perl with a few bits in C and shell scripts for 
> system integration.
> The compendium at 
> https://raptor.pccc.com/raptor.cgim?template=email_spam_compendium is helpful 
> to understand some of the concepts with SpamAssassin
> It will be helpful for a student in this project to understand SMTP but a 
> willingness to learn and setup your own mail server on a Linux Distribution 
> with SpamAssassin for a personal test domain will be very desired with 
> assistance provided to get the basic framework for a sandbox for learning.
> As email becomes more commodotized by major providers, knowledge of email 
> systems and their security is dwindling.  This opportunity can provide 
> real-world experience with an email security product that is employed by 
> countless commercial systems in the world.
