Description Markus Strehle 2010-11-07 06:48:00 EST
Spec URL: http://sourceforge.net/projects/clamsap/
SRPM URL: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/ehhle/
Description: This package provides two shared libraries which link SAP (NW-VSI) and ClamAV. The library clamsap links directly to libclamav engine library, the library clamdsap uses the clamd scan daemon to scan for viruses. Both libraries enable a SAP system to perform antivirus scans.
An example would be a ClamAV integration in SAP NetWeaver 730 (java and ABAP)

if possible I would use opensuse.org to provide the RPMs, see
I already ask OpenSuse to make the clamsap RPMs avaiable in security Project.

Hi Markus,

since I can't find you in the packager group, this is probably your first Fedora package submission. If so, please add FE-NEEDSPONSOR to the Blocks field above because you need a sponsor who approves you. For further information see the following pages: 


Please also provide complete URLs to the Spec and SRPM so that potential reviewers can directly access these files without having to browse through third-party websites.

The SPEC is available here:

or withint the package.

I hope this helps, regards,

Hi Markus,

thanks for the additional information. 

Creating packages for Fedora requires to follow quite a few specific packaging guidelines [1,2]. Since the packaging standards differ between the various distros, it's usually necessary to provide separate specs. Your current spec file doesn't satisfy the guidelines and I recommend to rewrite it from scratch, e.g. with the help of rpmdev-newspec.

sorry, but I will go the other way and request a location for my existing RPM at:

Your colleague Frank Danapfel has advised me to go this way, because ClamAV is not part of Enterprise RedHat.
