[Snort-users] Reliability of signatures

I like the idea of incorporating it into something the tools like
oinkmaster can pull down. I'm trying to make due with a small security
staff, and anything I can do that gets me closer to a hands-off
exception reporting system is a good thing. So if a reliability value is
available that I can incorporate into a risk calculation, that will
allow me to make better judgements about how to react.
So what needs to be done to make this happen?

	I like that idea too.  It'd make a lot of sense to integrate it
	snort.org - in fact there's probably a lot of data about Snort
	detection performance, config options and rule quality we could
put up
	there.  Communication favors the defender...

I would think it would need to have some kind of automatic reporting
method, perhaps with manual commenting?
