I am currently working on having ubuntu packages for maverick based on 
subversion snapshots. Once they are ready, at your request, i will try to 
backport them to lucid, but no warranty: last time i tried i found some show 
stopper dependency problems. I just don't want to expend too much time on that 
again, sorry.

We are few developers and package building steal too much hours from 
developing the framework and its applications, which should be our main focus 
between releases. While we provide some binaries when we do a new release, 
packaging for every platform/distro/version should be something that people 
working on those platforms do. 

If you want to help but you can't maintain the packages yourself, please, file 
or vote bug reports for you distro asking for maintained CLAM packages. 

As i have the packages I will send a new mail to the list.
