the two files you listed are the same file.  Symlinks are your friend.
The old URL /dl/snortrules.tar.gz exists only because that was the
location on the old site.  Many people use automatic downloading
tools.  Because of this, I symlink all of the snapshot URLs that we
have ever used to the current snapshot URL.

Yes, the 1.8.7 signatures ARE not synced as often as CURRENT.

Sometimes I'm too far into how things work in my world to think about how 
everyone else looks at this problem space or how other technologies work.
