So, chances are your anti-virus software is reporting false positives. Verify the package checksums. If there are OpenPGP signatures, verify them ... they will (most likely) have been signed by keith@users.osdn.me, with signing key footprint C19E C018 1547 DE50 E1D4 8F53 C0AD 36C6 347E 5A3F.

Such verification is your own responsibility; we cannot help with that. Beyond checksum and signature verification, it is also entirely your own choice as to how much faith you have in your anti-virus software; personally, I distrust every one of those which is commercially marketed, and trust only ClamAV.
