I can't really make sense of what is going on here - because the 
clamav-unofficial-sigs.cron file is included in the 
clamav-unofficial-sigs.tar.gz - but looking at its contents, it should 
be part of the sources, as it comes from upstream. Same with the 
logrotate and the man files. Why are they included in the SBo scripts
