Update clamav in EPEL 4 and 5
Last modified: 2007-12-30 18:07:13 EST
Description of problem:
Please update clamav in EPEL 4 and 5 to something more recent, IIRC it behaves
better when using together with amavisd-new. I already requested a branching
of amavisd-new for EPEL.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I am not sure how clamav-0.88.x came into EPEL; it was neither submitted by me
for these branches nor do I plan to maintain 0.88.x for 5-7 years.
Do you think, it's a problem to update clamav-0.88.x to 0.9x at all? And are
you interested in maintaining a current version of clamav in EPEL?
It is impossible because the configuration file format changed. RHEL/CentOS
users assume (resp. pay for it) that nightly 'yum upgrade' operations do not
bring their system in a broken state. Upgrade from 0.88.x to 0.9x requires
manual changes (e.g. of the files on your cfengine server); else, all mails
since 'yum upgrade' and the first phone call from an angry customer can get bounced.
Ush. This IMHO will make a recent amavisd-new unusable at all. Worse.
I have submitted a clamav package for review that I would like to maintain for

Reviewers and feedback welcome.
Well, ClamAV in EPEL 4 and 5 is up2date - closing now.
