Re: [Snort-users] Sguil 0.6.0 Released
From: Paul Schmehl (paulsutdallas.edu)

Bamm, will this version *require* patching barnyard? (If it does, I want
to submit an update to the barnyard port for FreeBSD to patch it when it's
installed, rather than trying to do it in conjunction with the sguil ports.
