Tim Bray: Which Apache project burns the most resources?
Mads: Spamassassin by a wide margin. […]
Heh, we win ;)
Helios, the Zones server, has been an incredible resource for us. SpamAssassin isn’t a traditional open-source software project in one respect: we use a lot of centralized “phone home” infrastructure to support rule and score generation. Having a virtualized server of this quality and horsepower to use for this has been fantastic.
