I hope this will just be a pointer to the resource...

Is there a repository with more details about what the signatures are.  Or a way to see what caused the match?   Some of the descriptions are quite vague, and it's hard to determine if an exception should be created.

eg: Sig 20019  "MALWARE-CNC User-Agent known malicious user agent - test"

You can use Snort's rule doc search to review signatures.  For example, here is info on the signature mentioned above.
