We posted a call for volunteers last week and have had great response. 
The committee will be chartered with defining a method to identify and 
either prevent or help users understand the overlap and differences 
between similar rules in the open source Snort rulesets. The board is 
meeting Friday to finalize the committee and get things kicked off.

More info on the OSSRC is available at http://ossrc.snort.org. 
Volunteers are still welcome so if anyone is interested, just let me know.
