The nightly mass-check setup on the SpamAssassin zone, spamassassin.zones.apache.org, uses helper "slaves" to actually scan the mail in order to reduce CPU load.

Setup

Here's how to set up a new slave.

  sudo -u mccli -H bash
  ssh-keygen -t rsa

  curl http://bbmass.spamassassin.org/pubkey.txt > ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
  chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

  sudo -u bbmass -H ssh mccli@hostname.domain.com echo tst

You will be prompted to accept a new host fingerprint; you should then see the string "tst".

Once this works, edit trunk/build/nightlymc/clienthosts in SVN, and add the login username@host to the list:

mccli@host.domain.org
mccli@another.domain2.org

The new mass-check client should be used in the next nightly mass-check (depending on when the "nightly" tag is applied).
