Sorry, I don't have the answer for that, but I thought the tar was
rolled from CVS daily.

You need two directories, rules and etc (for the sid files). Following
command would work:

# cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.snort.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/snort co
-r SNORT_2_0 snort/etc snort/rules

Then just use a script to move/copy the rules and the pertinent files
from etc (i.e. sid-msg.map) into your production Snort dir. Note that
above will check out 2.0 rules, not HEAD :)

Hope this helps,
