Obviously Joel is in a better position to answer these than a fellow user, but I'll give some of it a try.

You'll probably have to ask Gentoo why they are running behind. 0.99.2 has been ClamAV's stable release since it's Apr 22, 2016.

Questions about 0.99.3 would be better asked on clamav-devel, but it's currently an active branch <https://github.com/vrtadmin/clamav-devel/tree/0.99.3>.

The policy for the inclusion of 3rd party signatures has long been that the Community is both welcome and encouraged to submit them to the ClamAV Detection Content Team for validation and distribution. I know that some of the main providers have been personally encouraged to do so, but so far have apparently declined. There's even a page where anyone can submit them <http://www.clamav.net/reports/signature>. I seriously doubt that ClamAV will provide open inclusion of such signatures without having an opportunity to check each one for format and then run them against their Quality Control database in an attempt to reduce the number of False Positives.
