I wondering, could it be an idea to have a fast-moving archive for
things like SpamAssassin rules, Nessus plugins, Snort signatures,
perhaps virus signatures in the future, etc.? Has there been any
discussion on such a topic?
That way, one could package these things in separate packages, which is
made available in a separate archive, and people can apt-get them from
there as they do with security updates.
Just a thought.
