Thanks Joel. Ultimately I would like to be able to
download/compile/run/analyze snort 2.8 versions thru the current
version. Do you have links?
They aren't publicly available, I'll have to dig them out from storage somewhere.
I guess I could start my own repo of snort versions going forward (I'm
guessing this is OK since it would be publicly available and Snort is
Open Source) but I don't think it would come in handy form for another
two to five years.
Like I said before, maybe we can put them up somewhere for reference and people can get to them. I need to think about what's the best way to do that (considering our backend hosting, etc)
Maybe someone better at Sourceforge/github/etc.
could do this and/or Sourcefire could assist since they have all the
code (and aren't scared of the past or being fully Open Source).
I don't understand your "fully Open Source" comment. We've never hid anything. Our code has always been open source, and as long as Marty is around, always will be.
