[Snort-devel] preproc_rules

I agree that they will most likely not change often. The reason why I bring
this up is because everything else is part of the rules download except for
this directory. It would be nice if it was a part of the rules download so
there was a single download to completely create/update/restore the snort
configuration on a snort box. It would also add very little to the size.

Cheers,
Jeff

Jeff--

The rules files should be included in both the tarball and RPMs
since the rules themselves are unlikely to change outside of a
Snort release.

Cheers.
