Hey everyone,

After much preparation (ok ok so I have been on the road a ton and am 
just now getting back to reality) we are finally kicking off the Open 
Source Snort Rules Consortium (OSSRC). As a reminder, the goals of this 
group are to:
* Establish metrics and standards for Open Source Snort rule development 
and documentation
* Provide a forum for the sharing of research and information for the 
development of effective Snort Rules
* Ensure continuous support for a Snort Ruleset licensed under the GPL.

The first meeting will be held on Thursday, July 6th at 12:00pm EDT on 
IRC, freenode.net in the #ossrc room. 
Agenda items will include:
* An overview of how the OSSRC will run
* Nominations for officers
* Discussion of SID allocation for the various rulesets
* Discussion of sharing rulesets on the various web sites

All are welcome to attend. If your organization is interested in being 
formally represented in the OSSRC, please contact me directly.
