Yes. The only thing that didn't work was clamav-data, which I
considered a good use case.
However, looking at the bigger picture, when I started volatile, it
was basically impossible to bring any new "features" into stable like
fixing broken communications when backends changed. All of that is now
I'm really sorry for clamav-data - but at the bigger picture volatile
was still a great success.
