Joe,  You asked for a timeline and we said 2.2.0 out 
in beta soon (meaning next few weeks hopefully).  3.0 due
out optimistically Q1 2001.  Jeremy and I and not 
saying different things.  We know what our plans are and
are trying to communicate those plans to the Samba community.

People asked for a roadmap.  I've spent the past week 
trying to corrdinate volunteer efforts, TODO lists,
roadmaps, etc...

You got your answer.  Why do you persist with this
rude tone of voice?

ok.  If there is some type of personal history, you should 
take it off line.  EOF.  

I am personaly ignoring any other messages in this thread 
as I have better things to do I see nothing to accomplish 

[sigh....sometimes I really think this list should 
be moderated....]
