Sorry - a late reply to this thread.
I maintain the f-prot port, and the definitions for it. I like to think
I keep the f-prot up-to-date as best I can (currently it's one minor
revision behind, and there's a PR waiting to sort that out).
However, the definitions are a harder thing to solve. The f-prot guys
update the definitions on an almost daily basis. Should I be updating
the port that often? I suspect not. A better strategy would be for users
of the port to keep the definitions up-to-date manually.
A good middle ground (which I'm trying to do a better job of) is
updating the definitions when a "big" virus goes around. I guess I could
also try and update them if they haven't been updated in a "while".
