I can talk as Nessus co-maintainer. Stable uses have 'nessus-update-plugins' just for this. It still can be improved (for example, it will not check GPG signatures for you), however. As for Snort (which I will take over soon) I was considering providing oinkmaster  (or snortcenter) for a similar mechanism for rule updates. Regards Javier PS: I will routinely backport versions to woody too, but that's off the main release.  Thus closing #219996 which has not seen any change since November.
