Excuse me, I am a newbie but I think something is wrong becouse I 
downloaded a "stable" version of signatures. I used oinkmaster.pl 
and It was started from my cron to perform download from:
url = http://www.snort.org/dl/signatures/snortrules.tar.gz

What is the best practices when upgrading signatures?

looks like 1.9 conf with 1.8 snort
