Hi there

Has anyone looked at the size of that tar file? 94M! From New Zealand
it's taking 10-15 minutes to download, and I only want ~4M of it.

Surely this screams out for separation.
snortrules-snapshot-$VERSION-$DISTRO-$ARCH.tar.gz springs to mind?
Better yet, split the rules back into their original standalone tar, and
put the "binary" stuff in other per-distro containers?

Rsync would be better of course :-)
