Tag		Description
---		-----------
HEAD		Main development branch corresponding to 3.0

SAMBA_TNG	Luke's experiemental development branch (mostly
		for PDC work)

SAMBA_2_0_RELEASE	Corresponds to the release code (e.g 2.0.6,
			2.0.7, etc...)

SAMBA_2_0	tree for 2.0 development (now proposed for 2.2)

So work is done in HEAD, merged into SAMBA_2_0, and the 
becomes the release (while being snapshotted into SAMBA_2_0_RELEASE

Any work done is TNG is merged back into HEAD as the code 
is reviewed.

Does this help everyone?
