The AMaViS incoming-mail virus scanning utility (available
at http://satan.oih.rwth-aachen.de/AMaViS/) for Linux has
problems.

I tried to contact the maintainer of the package (Christian
Bricart) on June 26, again several times over the course of
[snipsnip]
scripts.


To add insult to injury: a week or two ago I attempted to contact him
(also with no luck) about a nasty bug, when using Sophos (and likely
other anti virus software) AMaViS was not picking up on the updates,
that is the updated IDE files in /opt/ide, and defined as
SAV_IDE=/opt/ide were not being used by AMaViS, however from the
command line, using the "sweep" command they were picked up fine, this
means AMaViS doesn't generally pick up on BO2K, etc. Perhaps a new
maintainer (an active one anyways, with a pulse) is needed.
