The best that we can do right now is to give the GID/SID combos for
the shared object rules in the advisory text for the rule release, we
are not able at this time to include the rule information in the
changelog in the same way we do for regular text rules. We know about
the issue and we are working on it.

Apologies for the inconvenience.
