[Snort-devel] ds_list versus context (detection plugins)

Hello and Greetings

Certain detection plugins depend on storing relevant information using
the ds_list member of the otn
However, certain other detection plugins make use of the context
member of OptFpList for storing relevant info
for that option.

Both methods work.

I am trying to understand if there is any differences between each
approach and which method should be used when?

Thanks for the help !
