[Snort-devel] React with InlineMode

Actually I didn't know... but asking to my CEO, she said that it's to match
the Decreto Gentiloni which is against the pedo-pornography.

Looking at
I could understand that this law create a national center to fight against
online pedophilia by collecting a black list of ip/domains.
Internet providers (like us) have to filter traffic coming from those site /

To add a value to this legal due, we decided to use Snort as an IPS to
protect our clients from dangerous sites.

The law said that, the users should be alerted about the forbidden content.
So we decided to correct and better integrate the react plugin.

Probably missing the right way to comunicate, I'm tring to understand who's
to send patches to the code and to the documentation.

Is this list the right place?
With some of our test, we found the react a funny/ambitious hack (but with
many little bug I'm fixing).
By integrating it better with the inline mode, we hope to make it really
useful (and it actually will be used, at least from us)

Thanks for your help...
