Those timestamps only tell you when the tarball was created (which is 
done automatically from cvs every x minutes or so). You should look 
at the cvs Id tag in the files to find out when the content last changed.

The -current rules tarball was recently updated and I don't know why 2_1 
was not, but a good thing with Snort is of course that you can and 
should write your own signatures.
