Per your documentation, Nigel is on vacation at the moment.  When he
gets back, I'm sure he will let you know.  BTW, I wrote the porn
rules.  It was such hard ... work :)

Well, feel free to put it together and host it somewhere.  I'm sure
other people would love that type of ruleset, though I don't think
I'd accept it into the "official" set.  (Though, if enough people
chime in and you keep it up-to-date, we can discuss it further...)

I've been thinking about hosting unofficial rulesets people put
together on snort.org for a while.  I'll make you a deal.  If you keep
it up to date, I'll host it on snort.org for all to download in the
contrib section.
