Okay, so there are two ways to go about this. 

#1 -- you release it on your own, pick a high GID and SID range that we wouldn't use any time soon, and you go on your merry way as an additional plugin.
#2 -- You gives us the code for possible incorporation into the Snort tree.  The way that works is that you sign over all Copyright to the code to Sourcefire, and we attribute it back to you.
