Correct. Which I have done.

Let's not discuss the usefulness of SPF here....

If that is redhat's opinion, they should stop publishing spf records. If it is
not, then someone needs to forward this complaind that enabling SPF with an
extras pacakge is currently failing for the redhat setup, and needs to be fixed.

So, either this should go to the sysadmins responsoble for redhat, or it should
go as a bug report to perl-Mail-SPF-Query. I'm happy to do either if I know
which one is correct.

What is not a good way to proceed is not doing anything. It will cause
people deploying redhat/fedora boxes with SPF enabled to miss various
if not all redhat mailinglist messages.
