Hello Community,

i would like to query https://www.snort.org/rule_docs/{REV}-{SID} for  
meta-information about all the rules, in order to decide if the rule  
should be turned on or off in an environment.
My trivial approach was to use python(urllib) to crawl the website and  
then parse for my desired information.
The problem is that snort.org refuses to serve my request after  more  
the 10 requests (HTTP 429). I have set an custom user-agent in the  
header of the request.

Is there another way to obtain the information under  
https://www.snort.org/rule_docs/{REV}-{SID} ?

best regards
