Why does the person responsible for these uploads not know about this
opposition? Why was the person doing the significant work not informed
about the fact that every single minute put into the package is wasted

I wasn't informed once about the changes that were applied to the
volatile mechanisms in the last year. All interruptions in the
clamav-data delivery were caused by unannounced changes.

Does the project want me to stop providing clamav-data starting
