Hi everyone,

I've been seeing several comments around the 'net regarding the audit 
provision in the new VRT license and we're aware that people have 
concerns with it.  Please be aware that we're looking at it and 
evaluating what we want to do.  Any time you get lawyers involved 
things sometimes don't work out quite like you were planning.  As I 
said a few days ago, we're not a faceless corporation at Sourcefire, 
we're a collection of people who are trying to put together a good 
compromise that we can all live with.  We understand the concerns with 
the the audit provision of the VRT license and we're going to to put 
something better together.

I would like to ask everyone to be patient while we get through the 
initial phases of getting the new site and services rolled out.  There 
are going to be a few bumps along the way, but at the end of the day I 
think everyone is going to be happy with the changes and the new site 
and services.  If you see something that looks wrong in the site or 
license please tell us and we'll look at it.  We're people just like 
you, we overlook things and make mistakes sometimes just like normal 
people.  We're going to make this right so please give us a little time 
to get the kinks ironed out.

If anyone has any questions or comments please send mail to me or 
snort-feedback at ...1935... and we'll get back to you.
