So what we've been doing in the meantime is accepting any submissions that come in (some attributed via the blog, some don't want to be attributed which is fine) and putting them in after testing via our normal methods.

When the community ruleset is rolled out, a metadata tag will be added to those rules that have been submitted by the community, and all those will be placed into their own ruleset for free-to-everyone download.  Subscribers will not have to do anything.
