Re: Updating scanners and filters in Debian stable (3.1)

I wonder if the maintainers of

have made up their mind on how they will update clients that have
installed sarge, once it is released and only barely accepts updates.

f-prot-installer downloads both the scanner engine as well as virus definitions from the vendor's FTP site. However, if they decide to change FTP location, the layout of their tarballs or their own update script, the installer will break. Would this warrant an update to stable?
