They're not here either.  To be honest the whole VRT deployment process 
reminds me of some Rube Goldberg machine that is perpetually in some 
state of being broken.  VRT is like Ubuntu when it was based on Debian 
Sid.  It's *almost* good and usable and from time to time you can get 
things done in spite of it.  I'd like to think the 30-day delayed 
Registered User VRT packs are like the Ubuntu LTS, it's still unstable 
but it's usually working somehow.

I will comment that without fail, there's *always* some epic failure in 
the VRT release.  I really look forward to them like a sadist.  Whether 
it be a non-existent change log, the implementation of new features 
without announcement crashing older versions of Snort in the same 
branch, release announcements before the archive even fully exists on 
the webserver and you're serving up truncated tar-gzips, signatures that 
map the network like those that detect on "SMTP HELO", VRT shared_object 
rules which do not contain pre-built binaries for the current download 
release on Snort.org, etc.

I like to think the guys go out the night before the VRT release, get 
really *really* wasted, and come in the next day and push out some 
goodness, then sit back and high-five each-other everytime an issue like 
this comes out.  Then they go back and light up cigars with $100 bills 
out of the VRT subscription vault.

I pulled the VRT archive yesterday Nigel.  They're not there.
