I've waited the morning out to see if this would clear up, but I've been ping-ponging back and forth between 501 and 403 errors when using the Pulled Pork svn to try and download the new rules.  Below is the verbose output... any words of advice here?

snort-lab:/etc/snort/pulledpork# ./pulledpork.pl -c etc/pulledpork.conf -vv

        The MD5 for snortrules-snapshot-2860.tar.gz did not match the latest digest... so I am gonna fetch the latest rules file!

Rules tarball download....

The rule download location has changed, you will want to get the latest version of pulledpork from svn (0.4.2) or wait until the tarball is released shortly.

I've been using PulledPork (v 0.4.1 Stumbling Leprechaun) to get my rules, but in the last week or so it has started giving this error:
Error 403 when fetching http://www.snort.org/pub-bin/oinkmaster.cgi/snortrules-snapshot-2860_s.tar.gz.md5 at /home/xxxx/snortrules/pulledpork/pulledpork.pl<http://pulledpork.pl> line 306

It does this even if I wait several hours between attempts, so I don't think the 15 min limit is involved.

These are the applicable lines from the conf file:

My subscription is up to date--I can log in to the web site and download the rules ok.  Any ideas?
