Package: proftpd-mod-clamav
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Please consider removing clamav as a dependency of this package. Clamav 
should be a recommended or suggested package since this module can utilize a
clamav instance on a remote machine via TCP. There are no build dependencies
for this package on clamav that would otherwise make clamav a requirement.

This bug was discovered while trying to install this module in a docker container
containing proftpd and linked to a container running clamav.
