Subject: Snort Signature Database.... Sort of

Excellent idea. If it takes off I could see an auto-merge option to add 
to oinkmaster and other automated scripts to take these rules and merge 
with the stable branch from

How about turning the submitted rules (after some kind of very basic 
testing or verification) and making a text file that's always updated? 
(for those of use who like to script things)

Consider me in if you need any assistance.

So with this in mind I set up phpBB (Yeah   I know) and am opening it up to everyone while I work on a better interface to put our signatures into I figured that this was easy and searchable.
