No, the packages are as a whole and overwrite each other.

We are, however, thinking and planning of this, coupled with a management feature from Snort.org<http://Snort.org>.

More to come.

Considering the steadily growth of snort rules and download file size, I'm wondering if snort rules can be
downloaded incrementally. Meaning only the changes since a defined base version (e.g. monthly, weekly, daily...) are downloaded.
Thus saving bandwidth and resources on the server and on the client side either.

Does anyone know if and how snort rules files can be downloaded incrementally?
