How can I tell if SpamAssassin is using Razor?

'Usually, you have to do nothing in order for SpamAssassin to use Vipul's Razor (except for, obviously, having Razor installed). However, if you wonder whether it is being used or not, run SpamAssassin in debug mode:

No Format
  spamassassin -t -D < /tmp/spam

(being /tmp/spam a mail message). If Razor is being used, you'll see some lines like these:

No Format
 debug: Razor is available
 debug: Razor Agents 1.20, protocol version 2.
 debug: Read server list from /home/jgb/.razor.lst
 debug: 72636 seconds before closest server discovery
 debug: Closest server is
 debug: Connecting to
 debug: Connection established

 debug: Server version: 1.11, protocol version 2
 debug: Server response: Negative
 debug: Message 1 NOT found in the catalogue.
