I do not use rules_du_jour either because my boss wants to review the
changes before they are put into production (don't laugh!)... so I fetch
them into a temp directory and send out an email whenever one rule
changed. If I don't get any comment from my boss, the rules are moved
into production on the next day. So far this system saved me some
trouble when there was a problem with one SARE rule: I just deleted the
file in my temp directory and waited for the corrected version to appear
on the next day.
I don't run sa-update either (it is disabled, but I think I will enable
it). So my files were probably installed at the same time I installed
