Default Clamav-status Was: Meeting summary/minutes from today's EPEL sig meeting (2011-03-14)

OK, so now we have a working clamav for RHEL5/6 (I have no RHEL4 systems
to test on), but I'm not 100% satisfied with it.. Issues when upgrading
from clamav-0.95 on RHEL5:

1 - /etc/freshclam.conf created as /etc/freshclam.conf.rpmnew
2 - /etc/sysconfig/freshclam saved as /etc/sysconfig/freshclam.rpmsave
3 - /etc/cron.d/clamav-update saved as /etc/cron.d/clamav-update.rpmsave
Not much effect to rename a file under cron.d, will still be
active. But this is probably part of the old packages' uninstall,
so I don't know if new packaging can fix it.

4 - Some files below /var/lib/clamav/ are still owned by old clamav-user
after the upgrade, so freshclam is unable to write to these.
Problem at least for mirrors.dat.

5 - clamd service is enabled by default, I don't think it should be.
Not sure how to avoid it..

6 - Some minor milter issues. I fixed the broken options, but didn't
touch the already installed clamav-milter.conf with wrong username.


Not sure which needs to be fixed, and which can be manually handled on
upgrades. I'm pushing clamav-0.97-9 to testing in bodhi now...
