sendmail 8.14 -> FC6?



  Has some nice anti spam features (see below) - once it goes final (presently 
in beta) will there be an update for FC6 ?

Some of the useful stuff:

Try to deal with open HTTP proxies that are used to send spam
		by recognizing some commands from them. If the first command
		from the client is GET, POST, CONNECT, or USER, then the
		connection is terminated immediately.
New PrivacyOptions noactualrecipient to avoid putting
		X-Actual-Recipient lines in DSNs revealing the actual
		account that addresses map to.  Patch from Dan Harkless.
CONFIG: New FEATURE(`require_rdns') to reject messages from SMTP
		clients whose IP address does not have proper reverse DNS.
		Contributed by Neil Rickert of Northern Illinois University
		and John Beck of Sun Microsystems.
CONFIG: New FEATURE(`block_bad_helo') to reject messages from SMTP
		clients which provide a HELO/EHLO argument which is either
		unqualified, or is one of our own names (i.e., the server
		name instead of the client name).  Contributed by Neil
		Rickert of Northern Illinois University and John Beck of
		Sun Microsystems.
CONFIG: New FEATURE(`badmx') to reject envelope sender addresses
		(MAIL) whose domain part resolves to a "bad" MX record.
		Based on contribution from William Dell Wisner.
