Package              : clamav-data

Since July 2005 volatile contained current ClamAV Virus Databases through
the clamav-data package.  Those were autobuilt and uploaded several times
a day and intended for computers which cannot access the internet through
HTTP but only a local package mirror.

This service will be discontinued in about a month when volatile moves
to Debian's FTP master server and the official mirror network.  Users of
the package are advised to set up a local HTTP mirror which can then be
used with freshclam.

A suggestion about how to set up such a mirror can be found in the ClamAV
developers' Frequently Asked Questions:


Furthermore kudos go to Marc 'Zugschlus' Haber who maintained this service
for almost four years.
