I don't know actually.

But I would say: that doesn't matter at this point. An outdated
suricata is like an outdated antivirus, users need to move forward.
Is not only the lack of upstream support. Users would like to get rid
of some important security issues and bugs.

Do you think there is chance for suricata 2.x in squeeze-lts? What are
your thoughts?
