   I guess that Marty and/or someone from the core group of snort-developers
would be in a better position to answer that question.
   My reading is that - since SnortSnmp uses the SNMP libraries - it
cannot be independently security-audited (without carrying out an audit
of the net-snmp code). The current move in Snort is to retain code in core
only if it is security-audited/auditable.
   My intentions are to develop an independent trap generation module for
Snort that will not require external snmp-libraries. But that is not
happenning as quickly as I would want that to happen. Intentions do not
match the time on hand :-(

   Hope that helps.

   Thanks and Cheers
