I'm sorry, mea culpa. For one, what you already said. For two, I later
realized the reason for snort is not packaged is NOT some laziness of
the maintainer: Upstream licence changed in 2.3. Data files (rules) in
later revisions cannot be distributed freely. If I understand it
correctly, the maintainer does not want to pack snort with only a few
tens of free rules with what I agree.
I think the way to get recent snort (which is tempting) is to build it
myself and register to get the free rules.
