As far as /var/lib:
Is this something the fedora package changes or is this something new?
It's somehow a new upstream feature where updated rules can be distributed
separately from the main engine, so the sa people do not have to do full
releases every time a spammer thinks of a new trick (similar to new AV checksums)
spamd need to read files in /var/lib? Does it need to write them there?
sa needs read access to /var/lib/spamassassin, the rules updating is supposed to
be done by a super-user (allowing sa to self-update its ruleset would of course
IMHO /var/lib and not /var/cache or /var/spool is the right place for this kind
