True. My job will have to be prioritized in the foreseeable future. I
should have orphaned this package long ago.

Fortunatly there have been a lot of people offering to do something
about it (even exluding those in this thread). You should probably be
communicating with them too.

Luca 'NERvOus' Gibelli and Mike Cathey offered to help maintaining the
package. They have a 0.65 package at: http://clamav.catt.com/debian

Stephen Gran have also offered to help and have secured some 'work' time
to do it on. The last mail he sent me mentioned a pre-package that would
fix many bugs.

All the others I have forgotten about.

No, probably not.

The fastest way would be to work with Stephen Gran, since he is already
a debian developer and was looking into the issue before this thread.
