AbuseFilterParser::ccnorm() should not do a homemade reimplementation of AntiSpoof::equivString()
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Instead of manually checking file paths, loading and interpreting an equivset, it should just call AntiSpoof's equivalent function. The problem here is that AntiSpoof itself does a home-made reimplementation of strtr() - that needs to be fixed first. Bonus points for fixing generateEquivset.php to not generate replacement pairs with empty keys which currently requires a workaround.

Would it be better to split off the method into a standalone library so this extension does not depend on the other only for this method (i.e. they can both depend on the standalone library)?

@dmaza I'm moving this back a step since it hasn't been merged yet.
