Sure.  But this was a big step and we aren't completely done.  This is a 
very slow process since if anyone commits any fixes, then it throws off 
the masscheck processing.  I was wanting to get some good rulesets 
generating again but this is drawing out forever.

We did get ruleset 1814048.tar.gz promoted last night but it's going to 
take 2 more days of good masschecks before everything is rolling along 
properly -- I understand we still have to look at/fix the 
merge-scoresets before enabling DNS updates.  DNS updates are still 
disabled so sa-update won't do anything.

cd /tmp
sa-update -v --install 1814048.tar.gz

I installed this ruleset on a couple of my test instances and it SA 
linted OK.

We are back to a good sized

Never had anyone else help until now.  :)

Need to test this on the same OS version as the server:

root@sa-vm1:/# lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID:	Ubuntu
Description:	Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS
Release:	16.04
Codename:	xenial

I will be doing some work on this over the weekend and will do some test 
greps.  Just don't want to commit things at the wrong time to mess up 
the masscheck processing.
