[Snort-users] Why PulledPork over Oinkmaster

Is there anything written up on why we should be using PulledPork over
Oinkmaster, or over manually updating?

There may be something on the blog about this? All this should be fairly
easy for JJ to place on the blog, if it's not there?

Kindest regards,

Oinkmaster and barnyard are two different things.

Oinkmaster updates rules.  Barnyard2 processes Snort's output.
