This is fixed.

I did a diff between these scripts in cron.daily and I see you call /usr/bin/update_spamassassin
instead of /usr/bin/sa-update now, but there's no /usr/bin/update_spamassassin
in rpm file, only in tar.gz. BTW, update_spamassassin should probably be in
/usr/sbin, not /usr/bin, like all other update_* scripts.

I see you added it to /usr/sbin/update_virus_scanners, but I'd like it to be
added to /etc/cron.hourly/update_virus_scanners too. And this file should
be marked as config file in rpm, so that updates don't overwrite it.

The "Linux RPM spec file" download link in Downloads
( is for an old version 4.26.5,
so the patch will probably not apply, but here it is:
