Surely there would be little or no confusion if the rulesets were re-named
as Development and Production?  This issue has been coming up in the list
too many times.

The Current ruleset (snortrules-snapshot-CURRENT.tar.gz) is for use with
current snapshots of snort. These are development builds. Current is found
on http://www.snort.org/dl/snapshots/. Current is not for production
servers. The snortrules-snapshot-2_1.tar.gz is for use with snort 2.1.x;
these rules work with snort 2.1.x. The dates show that they are updated at
the same time. Perhaps they are tested as well. The reason for split rules
is to be able to introduce new features and test them without breaking
functionality for stable versions.

Can someone please remind us what CURRENT is these days?

I'm confused. As far as I'm aware, 2.1.X is the CURRENT series, and yet the
Download area states snortrules-snapshot-2_1.tar.gz is for 2.1 and
snortrules-snapshot-CURRENT.tar.gz is for CURRENT? The MD5 show they are
definitely different...

What is CURRENT?

(I'm using 2.1.2 of course)
