We'll be removing the old files eventually. No date slated for it yet.

how will deployed snorts know about the removal of these files? especially in 
the cases where those persons managing them do not participate in these lists or 
even know of them?

If they are using pulledpork in it's recommended and default configuration?  Nothing.  

If you are using something else, nothing.  As we can't delete the files from your system.  They'll just be removed from 
the tarball.

New users won't notice as the files will be removed from the snort.conf and the tarball.

TL;DR: Nothing.
