Bug in baruwa mailscanner

I am starting to use Baruwa's mailscanner package 
mailscanner-4.84.5-2.el6.noarch and I just noticed that spam viruses 
weren't being reflected in the spam assassin score (I was expecting an 
entry MS_FOUND_SPAMVIRUS 3.00 which wasn't there).

The problem is that the package provides a symbolic link 
/etc/mail/spamassassin/spam.assassin.prefs.conf -> 
to get spamassassin to include the mailscanner specific configuration 
options. However this doesn't work as spamassassin only processes files 
ending in .pre or .cf so it is ignored, meaning that some options are 
omitted including the handling of the spam virus score. Traditional 
mailscanner had the link
/etc/mail/spamassassin/mailscanner.cf -> 
which does work.

What is the best way to report this bug (assuming posting to this list 
isn't sufficient)?
