To my knowledge there aren't any public pcap archives.  If anyone knows of one 
I'd love to know about it.  We've been working on putting one together for unit 
testing over here and it's been a tedious process.

If anyone has good quality pcaps of real network traffic (not forged, invented, 
netdude'd, contains full session, etc) for snort rules and is willing to part 
with them I'd definately be interested in looking at them.  Maybe there is even 
a "Snort This" T-Shirt in for the contributor.
