Subject: obfuscating e-mails in RPM specs

Hi,

We're about to start obfuscating e-mail addresses in our RPM spec files,
and we intend to update all of our existing specs accordingly.

The syntax we might use is this:

* Sat Sep 24 2005 Solar Designer <solar at owl.openwall.com> 3.6.1p2-owl15

My questions are:

1. Are others doing the same?  What syntax is being used?

2. Is this known to break any software processing spec files or RPMs?
In particular, I guess the extra spaces might break the separation of
fields, so should they be avoided?  Maybe use dashes instead?

3. Is it even worthwhile to try to come up with a common syntax for this?

Thanks,

--
