Watch sig updates for HEAD and backport them.  When it involves a
byte_jump or byte_test rule, either switch long content for specific
attack or say "this one is being skipped" and submit rules file diffs
for commit.

Once that path has been taken for a while and everything seems to be
going ok, you would be able to commit yourself.
