I don't remember such. I normally try and jump on all bugs as
soon as time permits. I don't always reply but that's due to
my email volume.

That can also happen, sorry. A lot of the time we don't get
feedback back to people - that's something I'm trying to work
on so people know when something gets integrated.

Again, I don't remember doing this. Being dismissive of
other people's efforts is definately not something I make
a habit of doing.

Could this be the core of your issues with Samba development ?
We don't own Samba, so we couldn't possibly allow this.


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
