Description Robert Scheck 2007-07-20 15:17:29 EDT
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):
Comment 1 Enrico Scholz 2007-07-20 15:39:48 EDT
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.
Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2007-07-20 15:47:26 EDT
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?
Comment 3 Enrico Scholz 2007-07-20 16:07:00 EDT
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.
Comment 4 Robert Scheck 2007-07-20 16:10:33 EDT
Ush. This IMHO will make a recent amavisd-new unusable at all. Worse.
Comment 5 Kevin Fenzi 2007-11-26 13:11:39 EST
I have submitted a clamav package for review that I would like to maintain for

Reviewers and feedback welcome.
