Hi Victor,

Sorry no PF_RING for you! :-), (at the moment).

Let's say that this version of Smooth-Sec is a kind of beta version,
I've already spotted some small issues that need to be fixed. My idea
is to roll out this version (v.1) and wait for some feedbacks and
comments in order to write a to-do list. When a decent amount of issues
are collected we can schedule a new release or upgrades via apt.

For the  records, this version is using Suricata 1.1 Beta1. In the next
day I'm going to write the how-to install and tweak the distribution.

I'm thinking to use some sourceforge tools such wiki, mailing list, Git,
tracker and so on, in order to coordinate and share as much as possible
the management of the project.

In the meanwhile my best regards.
