What ends up happening is I have to go digging thru multiple web pages since after the first web page, I has to access more URIs since the details on what was updated is not there either on the first page.  SO you have email -> web page -> (repeat the web page step as long as you can take it and maybe get lucky) -> real info.

I see what you are saying.  I usually don't send an email to the list.  Usually the list only gets the email from research with the direct link that I pointed out before.  (of course, after which you have to select the version of Snort you are running, So, yes, two clicks).

But I thought it important enough that I send a one off email so the community know the awesome change we made in the rule build.
