Thanks Joel,

I think I get it.  Hopefully not off topic, but what's the..."life" of a rule?  Is the below correct?

1.  Initial rule published to Subscription Users
2.  Updates made/rev changed (if needed)
3.  Published to Registered Users after 30 days
4.  All updates to the rule go back to step 1

If this is the case, then this explains why I have rev 1 of rule 17363, while Subscription Users have rev 3.  Do I have 
it right?

Thanks.

James

While the VRT can do millions of tests against rules, it's also very helpful for us to receive these reports from our 
rule users (registered or subscriber). VRT can't emulate every kind of traffic that you all will run into. Updates are 
our way of making things more efficient and less false positive prone.
