clamav needs mimedefang subpackage
Last modified: 2012-01-25 15:21:49 EST
Description of problem:
There's a lot of trivial/mechanical work involved in setting up clamav to work with mimedefang. And it's easy to make a mistake and spend hours troubleshooting it (especially if SElinux is enabled).
A subpackage called "clamav-mimedefang" that installs and initializes the service would be handy.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
It would contain:
and during it's %postinst it would create:
and run "chkconfig clamd.mimedefang on ; service clamd.mimedefang start".
It could also link:
ln -s /var/run/clamd.mimedefang/clamd.sock /var/spool/MIMEDefang/clamd.sock

I am going to close this as WONTFIX because:
* 'clamav' is the wrong package for mimedefang/exim/... integration
because these software projects have nothing in common except that
they can communicate
* it will be a non trivial work (3 or 4 (with sysv) new subpackages,
user creation, init script registration...)
* although I use mimedefang by myself, I am not familiar with exim or
other server integration
* reassigning this bug to mimedefang/exim/... and requesting that the
clamav integration is provided there is not a solution because items
above hold for them too
Creating a new fedora package which does the requested integration
is probably the most clean solution. I do this for myself (see
http://ensc.de/clamd.mimedefang.spec) but do not have time to deal
with the fedora review process.
