  Description     : clamd is a portable Python module to use the ClamAV anti-virus engine

 clamd is a portable Python module to use the ClamAV anti-virus engine on
 Windows, Linux, MacOSX and other platforms. It requires a running instance of
 the clamd daemon.
 .
 This is a fork of pyClamd v0.2.0 created by Philippe Lagadec and published on
 his website: http://www.decalage.info/en/python/pyclamd which in turn is a
 slightly improved version of pyClamd v0.1.1 created by Alexandre Norman and
 published on his website: http://xael.org/norman/python/pyclamd/

We already have pyclamd 0.2.2 in the archive:

http://packages.qa.debian.org/p/pyclamd.html

Although it looks like at least the binary package name should change, I think 
it would make sense to have only one actively maintained version of this in 
the archive instead of two.

Also, this should be the upstream URL, not the URL of your packaging work.

This is a fork of code in the package available currently. As far as I 
can tell this one is being actively worked on but the other is not. A 
little background, my primary motivation for wanting this package is 
that it the newest upstream of w3af requires it as a dependency.

As long as it's reasonably backwards compatible, we should definitely replace the unmaintained code with the maintained fork.
