ClamAV Updates for SME8 and 9 - we now roll our own
« on: December 17, 2014, 10:52:25 PM »
Updates for SME 8 and 9 - Clamav 0.98.5 are NOW syncing to the mirrors

Thanks to Daniel for getting this working

The boys in the back room are pleased to announce that to ensure we keep our users up to date we are now building the latest clamav from source rather than waiting for others to build it.

We should see in the future that as Clam produces an update we are no longer reliant (and waiting) on others upstream to promulgate updated rpms. As the process becomes automated we will be able to promulgate our update right on the heels of a Clam updated source package.

PS: look up "The boys in the backroom" a tad dated perhaps :-)

Dietrich's spirited rendering of this song inspired British Minister of Aircraft Production, Lord Beaverbrook, in a March 1941 speech in which he paid tribute to his research department who were contributing much in the Second World War. He said: "Now who is responsible for this work of development on which so much depends? To whom must the praise be given? To the boys in the back rooms. They do not sit in the limelight. But they are the men who do all the work." Beaverbrook said that Dietrich singing the song was a greater work of art than the Mona Lisa. From then on the term "backroom boys" was used for the unpublicized research scientists and technicians in the Second World War and subsequently to any boffins of this kind.
