clamav (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: clamav

The current clamav in Dapper is ancient and unmaintainable given upstream's maintenance philosophy (just upgrade to the current version). The current (0.92) clamav and all it's rdepends have been tested in a PPA and uploaded to backports for several weeks with no bugs filed.



Note: The PPA and the test page cover all releases, so some packages are listed which do not apply to Dapper.

The following packages should be copied from dapper-backports to dapper-updates/proposed depending of the PPA testing is considered adequate (my recommendation is straight to updates - needing to get all the new packages re-tested would delay this transition for some time).

avscan - 1.3.1-openssl-4~dapper1
clamav - 0.92~dfsg-2~dapper1
clamcour - 0.2.2-1.2build1~dapper1
clamtk - 3.06-1~dapper1
