As you have surely read on the OpenVAS website, the
openvas-distro at wald.intevation.org list is the correct list if you are
having issues with packages built by third parties.

The openvas-discuss list is intended for discussion of OpenVAS and may
help you once you have successfully installed OpenVAS. But most
subscribers of openvas-discuss may have installed OpenVAS from different
sources on different platforms and are unlikely to be able to help you.

Additionaly, not all package maintainers are subscribed to
openvas-discuss (and they should not have to), but they are subscribed
to the openvas-distro list.

So a good first step towards solving this issue would be mentioning it
to the people who could actually do something about it.
