I read about the reconstruction of shared object rules in the blog. So I'm confused about the missing file report. (see below)

Aug 23 19:22:40 c1 snort[801]: FATAL ERROR: /etc/snort//etc/snort/so_rules/browser-other.rules(0) Unable to open rules file "/etc/snort//etc/snort/so_rules/browser-other.rules": No such file or directo
Aug 23 19:22:40 c1 snort[796]: Starting snort: [FAILED]
Aug 23 19:22:40 c1 snort[805]: Stopping snort: [FAILED]
Aug 23 19:22:40 c1 systemd[1]: Started Snort IDS system.

The stub file couldn't be generated because the browser-other.so file isn't delivered in the latest snapshot download file.
There are more files missing not only browser-other.so. I expected all files listed in the blog to be included in the snapshot download file.

Is this a planned measurement of the reconstruction of shared object rules?
