	What doc are you talking about? The html page is generated
automatically based on the package description.

	It's best to use the BTS, that way _you_ can track/discuss with
the maintainer and this information is public for others to browse/comment
on.

	Please read first: bugs.debian.org
	The bug you are talking about is a 'wishlist' (or minor) bug. The
package can be used but you would like something to be done to fix a given
issue. Notice that your issue is a problem, not related to the Debian
package, but to the way the snort project changes the rules _and_ the IDS
engine. 

	Please open this bug giving appropiate information so that the
maintainer can understand the issue, try to be as "verbose" as possible
and (maybe) suggest how it could be fixed. Also, first check if it has
been reported before (go to bugs.debian.org/snort) and see the 'open'
bugs.

	Regards


	Javi
