HI All,
	What is the difference between snortrules.tar.gz and
snortrules-current.tar.gz ?

I use a script to retreive the snortrules.tar.gz file each day,
currently the script first retrieves the md5 file checks it against the
md5 of the last file retrieved and proceeds accordingly. It would be
nice if we could use the timestamps on  the files to determine if the
the rule files have been altered.  Would it be feasible to only rebuild
the tarball if the cvs stuff has actually changed?
