I may have missed the communication about this so if that is the case,
I apologise.  I was just wanting to update my 2.9.1.2 snort.conf for
2.9.2 but I noticed the snort.conf that ships with the 2.9.2 tarball
doesn't appear to include the reputation preprocessor and have the
WHITE_LIST_PATH or BLACK_LIST_PATH variables.  So I downloaded the
current VRT rule update for 2.9.2 and the snort.conf that ships with
that appears to be from 2.9.1.2 and it does include the reputation
configurations?

$ tar -zxvf snortrules-snapshot-2920.tar.gz
$ grep -A1 "Compatible with Snort Versions" etc/snort.conf
#     Compatible with Snort Versions:
#     VERSIONS : 2.9.1.2

$ md5sum snortrules-snapshot-2920.tar.gz
90242c0edf92cb44e05185487c36440b  snortrules-snapshot-2920.tar.gz

Is that right?  I'm just a little confused at the moment :-(
