Why would a user need ClamAV by default? ClamAV only scans for Windows viruses, so it's useful only for users who has Windows machines in their network, or for a mail or files server (ClamAV can scan emails and check if they contain viruses). I don't think it's useful by default. Windows viruses cannot possibly cause harm to a Fedora machine (unless it runs Wine, but Wine isn't installed on Fedora by default). In addition, you didn't fill the User Experience, Dependencies, Contingency Plan, Documentation and Release Notes sections, so the Feature Wrangler probably won't approve it anyway.

For the clamavintegration feature to move onwards to FESCo for approval, we need to get more details filled out in some of the sections (User experience, dependencies, contingency plan, documentation, release notes). Once these are filled out, I can send it onwards. --Rbergero 17:23, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Elad:You are right that this feature is only useful to those who also uses windows in dual boot.but this feature can also provide help to those who uses wine and can also provide anti-phishing and anti-rootkits like facilities to normal user.
