Why are you so concerned about updates for the sake of updates? 
Generally we only feel compelled to write rules and release them when 
there's a need for them (remember, we're all volunteers).  Personally, 
I've been receiving very, very little spam that isn't caught by SA.

If you'd like to use RDJ go for it.  The SARE rules (which are available 
via sa-update anyway, and from what I've heard only reliably via 
sa-update) haven't been updated much in the last 6 months either:

If you like, since you seem to be preoccupied with the raw number of 
updates, you can compare that the number of updates released by the SA 
project in the last 6 months:

[dos@wally asf-sa-updates]$ find . -type f -mtime -180 -name "*.gz" 
-perm 444 -exec ls -l {} \; | cut -d' ' -f7-
Sep  3 23:21 ./572502.tar.gz
May  7 00:31 ./535131.tar.gz
May 11 01:54 ./535132.tar.gz
May 31 01:41 ./543064.tar.gz
Jun  9 04:12 ./545708.tar.gz
Jul  4 17:46 ./548226.tar.gz
Jul 11 00:36 ./555165.tar.gz
Jul 15 18:55 ./556472.tar.gz

That might not be a bad idea.
