Attention Snort Package Maintainers

If you are the maintainer of one of the many packages for Snort/DAQ for different OSes that exist I need you to please email me! Please provide me the following information:

  1. Name
  2. Email
  3. What OS you package for
  4. What is the latest release that is distributed for the package you maintain.

I am compiling a list of those maintainers in order to give them some advance notice about when new versions of Snort are coming out in order for them to start to prep (even if it's just sitting aside time) for the new versions. I'm going to give any knowledge to the package maintainers about advanced releases that I'm not going to give to the rest of the community, I just want to be able to touch base with them to ensure they know a new version is coming!

It's come to my attention that one of the biggest problems we have is older packages still floating around out there in distros and OSes, and I'd like to get that part fixed.

Please email me at joel [at] sourcefire {dot} com. Thanks!
