I get an error right after Fail2ban restart in Ubuntu 14.04

Hello!

I've been having this little issue, after I've installed recently fail2ban on Ubuntu 14.04
Right after I restart fail2ban in the terminal I get an error message. Though I do get [OK], meaning that generally restart went OK. Still I wish to get rid of this probably minor issue. I get this error message:

WARNING  'ignoreregex' not defined in 'Definition'. Using default one: ''

Open in new window


After some googling, I found a possible solution. Which is to add this:

ignoreregex =

Open in new window


to fail2ban conf files in /etc/fail2ban/filter.d directory
I've checked all the conf files there and I've seen that line in all of them, EXCEPT for one, which is postfix-sasl.conf
I have to add that [sasl] jail is enabled in my jail.local file

So my question is whether the solution is correct and also I would appreciate some explanation of what it's all about.
