Access .rules files via HTTP ?

We have a lot of servers which do the same sorts of things (proxies, mail servers, build machines, etc..).  We manage all of the configurations via a common subversion repository, and the magic of cfengine.


For example, for both the black and white lists, one of our junior admins simply edits the appropriate configuration file in the SVN repository, and then commits it.  Every 15 minutes, cfengine compares the existing config files to the ones in the repository, updates as necessary, then reloads the appropriate service.

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the list, but have been using MailScanner for over a year, anyway, here is my question.


Is there a way to specify that the .conf files can be read over http?


We edit the spam whitelist 2-3 times a day on 2 different MailScanner servers.

Is there a way to configure MailScanner to read this file for a centralized web server instead of from the local file?
